Following Cruz's third place finish in Nevada, with 22.4 per cent to Trump's 45 per cent of the vote, Trump called him a "soft weak little baby".

Cruz posted a bizarre comeback on Twitter - the scene from Austin Powers where Fat B****rd tries to eat Mini-Me.

He also posted a message for Trump: "showing class and grace, calls me a "soft weak little baby."  Hope he doesn't try to eat me!"

Mr Trump now has three straight victories - in the West, the South and North east - a testament to his broad appeal among the "mad-as-hell" voters making their voices heard in the 2016 US presidential race.
