Donald Trump has called for new Republican elections in Iowa, accusing winner Ted Cruz of fraud.
The billionaire pointed to the fact that during the campaign, Ted Cruz told voters that rival Ben Carson was planning to leave the race, which was not true.
Cruz’s campaign apologized to Ben Carson, saying it was a misunderstanding.
Donald Trump came second in the first running state to elect a candidate for president of each party.
Next is New Hampshire, where voters will make their choice in the Republican and Democratic contests on February 9.
Donald Trump said: “Ted Cruz didn’t win Iowa, he stole it. That’s why all the polls were so wrong, and why he got far more votes than expected. Bad! “
Earlier, he wrote on Twitter that Ted Cruz “illegally” won the meeting, but later deleted the tweet.
Paul Pate, Iowa’s top election official, condemned Ted Cruz’s pre-election campaign pamphlets accusing the Iowans of “voting irregularities.”
The leaflets assess Iowans and their neighbors for how much they have voted in the past and tell them to show up to improve their results.
Paul Pate said Ted Cruz’s leaflets “misrepresented the Iowa election law” and that they were “not in line with the spirit of Iowa lawmakers,” but stopped taking official action.
Donald Trump’s reaction contrasted with his February 1 concession speech, which was seen as a humble departure from his usual bombastic style.
He called the second place a “great finished hit” in an earlier tweet.
Ted Cruz’s camp doesn’t take the allegations too seriously.
“Reality has just hit the reality star – he lost Iowa and now no one is talking about him, so he appears on Twitter,” Ted Cruz’s communications director, Rick Tyler, said Politics in email.
“There are support groups for Twitter addiction, maybe he should find his local head.”
There is no precedent for reorganizing a cacus.
Ben Carson accepted Ted Cruz’s apology for the rumors of dropping out, but his campaign called the tactic “dirty tricks.”
The other candidates are now in New Hampshire, the next state to hold a major vote, where Donald Trump is leading in the polls.
Also on Feb. 3, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum dropped out of the Republican race after disappointing finals in Iowa.
