@ Letsbereal.........THANK YOU ! THIS IS HUGE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Enquirer
During the Republican presidential primaries in March 2016, the Enquirer ran a story alleging that "political operatives" were investigating whether candidate Ted Cruz, a U.S. Senator from Texas, engaged in extramarital affairs. Cruz denied it and said that his political opponent Donald Trump had used connections to get the story published in the Enquirer. Trump denied involvement.
The Enquirer ran another story in April 2016, suggesting that Cruz's father, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, knew alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and worked with Oswald in New Orleans a few months before the assassination. Donald Trump publicly discussed this Enquirer story on May 3, 2016 saying to Brian Kilmeade of Fox News that "His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald's being — you know, shot. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous". On May 4, 2016 (a few hours after Cruz lost the Indiana primary and withdrew his candidacy) Trump stated that he did not actually believe the story ("Of course I don’t believe that") but wanted to "let the people read it." Kilmeade has since expressed regret for not following up on Trump's May 3 comment during that interview. According to WorldNetDaily (an American politically conservative news and opinion website and online news aggregator), Rafael Cruz responded in an interview with WND that, "These accusations are totally unfounded and without merit". On July 22, 2016, Trump again mentioned the magazine in connection with Cruz's father, saying "…I know nothing about his father. I know nothing about Lee Harvey Oswald. But there was a picture on the front page of the National Enquirer that does have credibility."
