Celebrities have threatened to leave the country and conservatives have threatened to abandon the Republican Party if Donald Trump becomes the presidential nominee. However, N.Y. Rep. Peter King made it clear Tuesday that Ted Cruz is the candidate he hates — and if the Texas senator wins the nomination, King would consider taking cyanide:
“I hate Ted Cruz, and I think I’ll take cyanide if he ever got the nomination,” the New York congressman told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “Now, having said that, I think you’re going to see Donald Trump scoring a big victory tonight. I have not endorsed Donald Trump. In fact, I actually voted by absentee ballot for John Kasich.”
King initially supported Marco Rubio. He said he voted for Kasich to send a message to Trump that “if he […] [h]e’s gotta really learn what he’s talking about and can’t just be talking off the top of his head and making reckless charges.”
Trump is expected to win King’s home state primary by a wide margin.
