Donald Trump Calls Ted Cruz a Liar, Threatens to Sue

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has threatened to sue opponent Ted Cruz if he does not take down his campaign attack ad.

"I'm thinking about it very seriously," Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America" about a potential lawsuit. "I've never dealt with anybody who lies like him. ...I think he's a very unstable person. I have never had somebody take something you believe in and say the exact opposite."

According to Trump's initial press release, the lawsuit would be over Cruz' eligibility to run for president since he was born in Canada.

He said, "One of the ways I can fight back is to bring a lawsuit against him relative to the fact that he was born in Canada and therefore cannot be President. If he doesn't take down his false ads and retract his lies, I will do so immediately. Additionally, the RNC (Republican National Committee) should intervene and if they don't they are in default of their pledge to me."

Trump clarified his positions on numerous topics in the release. He reiterated that contrary to everything Cruz said, he would not appoint a liberal judge, he is pro-life, he is not in favor of ObamaCare, and he is a supporter of the NRA (National Rifle Association) and will not be taking away Americans' right to bear arms.

Trump ended the release by declaring his superiority over the other candidates.

He said, "I am the strongest on the borders and I will build a wall, and it will be a real wall. I am strongest on illegal immigration, strongest on ISIS, strongest on the military and I will take care of our Vets. I will end common core and preserve the second amendment. I will renegotiate our trade deals and bring our jobs back to our country. I am the only person who will Make America Great Again."

Trump's statement comes after a dominating win in the New Hampshire primary and right before the South Carolina primary, which will take place on Saturday, Feb. 20.
