At AIPAC, Ted Cruz corrects ‘previous speaker’ on existence of Palestine

There’s no question that Donald Trump was a hit at AIPAC this evening. In an unusual turn for him, Trump stuck closely to prepared remarks read from a teleprompter, and he received several ovations, particularly following his promise that his “number one priority” would be “to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran.”

Trump was a tough act to follow, but Ted Cruz took the microphone and immediately took a shot at the Republican front-runner.

Trump’s own transcript shows him referring to Palestine three times. It might have slipped past many in the audience, but not past Cruz.

Cruz repeated the line later on CNN, to mixed response from viewers.
