Cruz and Trump traded some sharp - and, at times, personal - barbs during the 2016 campaign.

The president, speaking to reporters at the White House on his way to Houston, said he and Cruz have moved on, saying he's not "lyin' Ted" anymore but "beautiful Ted".

But Trump said he also had no regrets about suggesting Cruz's dad, Rafael, was linked to the JFK assassination.

"You know what I am, I'm a nationalist", Trump said. "That's like Ted Cruz's life right now", he continued, adding, "It's like the Devil making a deal with the Devil".

"Democrats had something to do with it and now they said I think we made a big mistake".

Over 100,000 tickets have been requested for the Trump/Cruz rally, but the Toyota Center can only accommodate 18,000 people.
