A Texas lawyer has filed a lawsuit saying Ted Cruz's status as a "natural born citizen" should be decided by the court system — and Donald Trump is loving it.

Trump tweeted, "I told you so," Saturday morning, along with another volley of tweets about unreported campaign loans to Cruz's 2012 Senate race. (Video via Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.)
