SHARE Donald Trump lashes out at Ricketts family, says they have ‘lot to hide’

Sometimes, it’s hard to take Donald Trump at his word.

Is he a liberal masquerading as a Republican? A businessman pretending to be a politician? Or, a “little teddy bear” playing the bully?

When pushed, though, The Donald usually lets everyone know exactly where he stands.

Such was the case when Trump found out the Ricketts family was spending money to help campaign against him.

From USA Today:

New campaign-finance reports show that Marlene Ricketts, the wife of billionaire T.D. Ameritrade founder J. Joe Ricketts, contributed $3 million to Our Principles PAC, a super PAC that blistered Trump with negative ads, voter guides and mailers ahead of the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. Katie Packer, who helped manage Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, runs the group.

Virtually all the money the committee raised in January came from Ricketts, whose family owns the Chicago Cubs.

Hmm. Could the Ricketts have another Cubs’ blockbuster deal in the works? Only time and Trump will tell.

Ted Cruz or Tom Ricketts?
