Donald Trump is accusing Senator Ted Cruz of cheating at the Iowa caucus and wants a do-over.

Right after Trump found out he came in second in Iowa, he congratulated Sen. Cruz. But now he’s changing his tune and is accusing Sen. Cruz of stealing the election, and insisting what he did is criminal.

Trump got on Twitter to show evidence and demand the results be nullified. He also brought up an incident involving Dr. Ben Carson.

Cruz’s campaign apologized to Dr. Carson for telling voters in Iowa he planned to quit the race and that they should vote for Cruz instead. They claimed they got the report from CNN.

CNN insists it reported that Dr. Carson would not go to New Hampshire or South Carolina, but he would remain in the race.

Now, Cruz is accusing Trump of having a “Trumpertantrum.”

“I wake up every day and laugh at the latest thing Donald has tweeted. Because he’s losing it. Look, we need a Commander-in-Chief, not a Twitter-in-Chief,” Sen. Cruz said.

While Sen. Cruz is brushing it off, Trump isn’t backing down. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
