Ted Cruz stated that Trump wrote 4 checks to Hillary when she was running in 2008. CNN fact check determined that this was untrue. Is Ted Cruz any more credible than the other candidates running on the GOP side?
Reality Check: Cruz on Trump's donations to Hillary Clinton
By Lisa Rose, CNN
Ted Cruz questioned how effective Trump will be squaring off against Hillary Clinton in a general election, given his history of donating money to her political campaigns.
"Donald Trump in 2008 wrote four checks to elect Hillary Clinton as president," Cruz said. "How can you stand on a debate stage with her and say you don't think she should be president?"
That's not quite right, according to the Federal Election Commission and the Center for Responsive Politics..
Trump donated one $600 check to Clinton's presidential campaign in 2007. But Trump also contributed to 2008 GOP nominee Sen. John McCain's campaign, and gave him more, to boot.
In response to Cruz, Trump acknowledged donating to Clinton. "I supported Clinton," Trump said. "I supported many other people, by the way."
Indeed, the businessman, his family and his companies donated more than $10,000 to Clinton dating back to her days as a New York senator in 2002. It's also true that Trump has donated lots of money to a broad array of politicians. His FEC profile is a testament to his prolific efforts funding candidates, Democrats and Republicans alike.
Amid all the filings, however, we couldn't find any records of Trump contributions to Clinton in 2008.
