Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said that he would not accept Sen. Ted Cruz’s endorsement now, even if he offered it.
Trump made the announcement at a news conference in Cleveland Friday morning after accepting his party’s nomination the previous night.
“I don’t want his endorsement. If he gives it, I will not accept it, just so you understand it. It won’t matter. Honestly, he should have done it, because nobody cares, and he would have been in better shape for four years from now,” said Trump.
He added, “I don’t see him winning anyway, frankly. Although, maybe I’ll set up a super PAC, if he decides to run.”
Turning to his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, he lightheartedly asked, “Are you allowed to set up a super PAC Mike, if you are the president?”
