Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Marco slammed rival Donald Trump on Sunday for declining to denounce former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke earlier in the day.

“Really sad,” Cruz wrote on Twitter.

Cruz further told Trump that “you’re better than this. We should all agree, racism is wrong, KKK is abhorrent.”

Rubio later wrote: “We cannot be a party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan.”

BuzzFeed reported last week that Duke, a prominent white nationalist and former KKK grand wizard, urged his supporters to back Trump.
