Trump campaign defends choice to boycott debate


Ted Cruz is mocking Donald Trump's decision to skip Thursday's FOX News Republican presidential debate, taunting him on Twitter and creating an image of his face on the illustrated body of Disney tycoon Scrooge McDuck, sitting on top of bags of money.

Cruz on Tuesday responded to Trump's decision to skip the debate in Des Moines by challenging him to a one-on-one debate, "mano-a-mano." Cruz is following that up on Wednesday with a satirical message on Twitter, linking to a clip of the song "Brave Sir Robin Ran Away" from a film by the British comedy troupe Monty Python.

Cruz created an online petition showing a mock-up of Trump with the Disney character's body, sitting on bags of money, on top of a mountain of gold coins, encouraging supporters to "Tell Ducking Donald: Debate Ted Cruz."
