In his first Sunday show interview since taking on an expanded role in Donald Trump's campaign, Paul Manafort alleged Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign is "not playing by the rules" to secure delegates.
Asked by "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd whether threatening delegates is fair game, Manafort said it wasn't Trump's style, "but it's Ted Cruz's style."
Manafort called the Cruz campaign's methods "Gestapo tactics, scorched-earth tactics."
He did not back up his accusations with specific incidents but said, "We're going to be filing several protests because reality is, you know, they are not playing by the rules."
NBC News has reached out to the Cruz campaign for a response.
