AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Mr. Trump, there is an influential community of evangelicals there in Indiana, known as a deep conservative state. And Rafael Cruz, who is the father of Ted Cruz, is really reaching out to that crowd and saying, "I implore every member of the body of Christ to vote for my son."

[...]

EARHARDT: Does that resonate with the folks there in Indiana?

DONALD TRUMP: I think it's a disgrace that he's allowed to do it. I think it's a disgrace that he's allowed to say it. You know, I'm backed by, you look at Jerry Falwell Jr. and you look at so many of the ministers that are backing me. And they're backing me more so than they're backing Cruz, and I'm winning the evangelical vote. And it's disgraceful that his father can go out and do that. And just, and so many people are angry about it. And the evangelicals are angry about it, the way he does that. And, you know, there's a whole thing. And, you know, his father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald's being, you know, shot. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous. What is this, right prior to his being shot, and nobody even brings it up. I mean they don't even talk about that. That was reported, and nobody talks about it. But I think it's horrible. I think it's absolutely horrible that a man can go and do that, what he's saying there.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Right. There was a picture out there that reportedly shows Rafael Cruz standing with Lee Harvey Oswald --

TRUMP: I mean what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death, before the shooting? It's horrible.

KILMEADE: Crazy.
