On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump engaged with a protestor who called rival Senator Ted Cruz a vulgar term.

Trump was speaking to a crowd of about 5,000 people inside the Verizon Center in Manchester when a woman in the crowd shouted that Cruz was a “p-ssy.”
