Rather than play it safe, Trump responded to every comment leveled his way, interrupted his opponents at will and called them liars repeatedly in an emotional outburst that could raise more questions about whether he has the temperament to serve in the White House. Cruz and fellow Senator Marco Rubio also took pointed jabs at each other over illegal immigration.
