Through all of the animosity within the GOP presidential race between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, the two have always begrudgingly agreed on one thing: to support the GOP nominee no matter who would be representing the party come November.
At a CNN town hall event on Tuesday night, Trump reversed on that promise, telling CNN moderator Anderson Cooper he no longer respects the so-called loyalty pledge a stage full of then-candidates agreed to during the very first GOP debate in Cleveland last August.
Cruz has been slowly backing away from the pledge and on Tuesday reiterated his hesitation, telling Cooper: "I'm not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and attacks my family."

John Kasich gave a string of noncommittal responses. When pressed by Cooper about whether he'd respect the pledge, the Ohio governor said, "If the nominee is somebody that I think is really hurting the country and dividing the country, I can’t stand behind them.”
