As Cruz Continues to Lead in Iowa, Trump Urges Voters to ‘Just Remember This’: ‘When You’re Casting Your Ballot, Remember…’

Businessman Donald Trump took a veiled jab at 2016 rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at an Iowa rally Tuesday night.

“Just remember this,” Trump told a crowd in Council Bluffs. “Just remember this. You got to remember in all fairness, to the best of my knowledge, not too many evangelicals come out of Cuba.”

“Just remember that. Just remember. In all fairness, here we are,” the real estate mogul said while waving his copy of the Bible in the air. “Just remember that folks. When you’re casting your ballot, remember.”

Trump went on to tout how he has “so many pastors and so many ministers in favor” of his campaign.

“It’s just very important,” he said.

This is not the first time Trump has taken a veiled jab at Cruz’s religion. Earlier this month, he said: “I do like Ted Cruz, but not a lot of evangelicals come out of Cuba.”

The attack on Cruz comes as the Texas senator leads Trump in the Iowa polls. According to the Real Clear Politics average of the most recent polls, Cruz has a 2.8 percent lead over Trump in the Hawkeye State.

A spokesperson for the Cruz campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheBlaze.
