In response to criticism Ted Cruz received from his “New York values” comment, he posted a 1999 video on Twitter of Donald Trump listing some liberal values.

Here was Trump’s comment on gays serving in the military.
I lived in New York City in Manhattan all my life, so my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa.
On partial birth abortion.
I’m very pro-choice, and again it may be a little bit of a New York background because there is some attitude in different parts of the country, and I was raised in New York.
In both cases, he mentioned his New York background for holding those positions.
It is what Cruz was referring to when he said “New York values” in the debate. However, Trump tried to paint Cruz as someone not sympathetic for the tragedies of 9/11, and I believe it was a desperate attempt.
