One of the hottest stories of the Republican primary campaign was the feud between Donald Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. The grudge appeared to be over this past May when Cruz ended his presidential campaign, but was reignited this week at the Republican National Convention.

Trump vs. Cruz

On the third night of the already disastrous convention, Cruz took to the stage to give his speech. When the senator from the Lone Star State refused to offer his endorsement of Trump, telling Americans to "vote your conscience," the crowd quickly turned on him. Pro-Trump supporters revolted in the crowd, attempting to attack Cruz's wife, Heidi Cruz, until security was forced to escort her out of the building.

The billionaire real estate mogul responded to the speech with the intention to spend $20 million to silence his political opponents, as reported by The Hill, via Bloomberg, on July 22.

According to Bloomberg, the former host of "The Apprentice" is set to invest as much as $20 million to create multiple super-PACs that would target Cruz, as well as Ohio Gov. John Kasich. During his press conference Friday morning, Trump hinted at his super PAC creation if Cruz decides to run for re-election in Texas. "Maybe I'll set up a super-PAC if he decides to run," Trump told reporters.

"Are you allowed to set up a super-PAC Mike, if you are the president, to fight someone?" Trump asked his running mate Mike Pence.

Election status

Currently, Trump is trailing Clinton by five points on a national level, with his numbers dropping quickly with minority groups. Over 70 percent of women and Hispanics have a negative view of Trump, with the numbers getting even worse when polled with African-Americans.

The Trump campaign is also failing to match Clinton with fundraising, so the news that he will spend $20 million against other Republicans is a curious way for a candidate to use his funds heading into the general election. Just last month, the Trump campaign filed with the Federal Election Commission and noted that they were down to their last $1.3 million.
