Donald Trump’s son, Eric, may be a bit confused about the phrase “New York values,” coined by Trump’s GOP rival Ted Cruz.
The front-runner’s son, who according to his Twitter profile, is the executive vice president of Development and Acquisitions at The Trump Organization, posted a picture from the HBO series, The Sopranos, with the caption, “Hey Cruz…When you get to NY we need to have a word with you. Tell us how you feel about NY values… we’ll send a car.”
So apparently this kind of threatening behavior runs in the family.
And as it turns out this is not the only negative reception Ted Cruz received from New Yorkers.
Courtesy of the Daily Mail:
As Cruz toured the lunch spot, a man identified as one half of a Latin hip-hop duo called Rebel Diaz yelled that the Texas senator is a 'bigot' and said he wasn't welcome because of his positions on illegal immigration.
'Ted Cruz has no business being in the Bronx!' the heckler shouted from the front of the Sabrosura2 restaurant where Cruz was making a campaign stop.
'This is an immigrant community. We deal with climate change every single day, and he wants to say that it doesn't exist.'
'We live in one of the poorest congressional districts in the country,' the man went on. 'And to receive this right-wing bigot is an insult to the whole community.'
'You're running on an anti-immigrant platform, and you're speaking in the Bronx,' he said. 'You should not be here!'
Gee, I guess this is how New York feels about "Texan values."
