Donald Trump released a statement on his website today firing back at Ted Cruz for his Tuesday morning outburst — and it proved the campaign has taken its most serious turn yet.

"Ted Cruz is a desperate candidate trying to save his failing campaign," Trump wrote on his website. "It is no surprise he has resorted to his usual tactics of over-the-top rhetoric that nobody believes."

The GOP front-runner's statement was written after Cruz called Trump "amoral" and a "pathological liar" on TV Tuesday morning. Cruz attacked the New York-based billionaire after Trump said Cruz's father had been linked to JFK killer Lee Harvey Oswald.

"This morning Donald Trump went on national television and attacked my father," Cruz said. "…Now let's be clear, this is nuts. This is not a reasonable position. This is just kooky."

But Trump said Cruz's response only shows how "unhinged" he has become after his recent primary losses. 

"Over the last week, I have watched Lyin' Ted become more and more unhinged as he is unable to react under the pressure and stress of losing, in all cases by landslides," the statement read.

Trump closed his statement by asserting that Cruz's remarks against him only prove that the latter is unfit for the presidency: "Today's ridiculous outburst only proves what I have been saying for a long time, that Ted Cruz does not have the temperament to be President of the United States."
