Ted Cruz Just Dropped The Hammer On The GOP ➠ Trump Will Be Pleased
Cruz’s previous endorsement of certain aspects of Trump’s campaign has raised speculation that the two have formed an alliance of some sort.
Describing the approach as “foolish” in a recent Politico interview, Cruz lambasted Republicans determined to “smack Donald Trump with a stick.”
He explained his position by referring to the reaction Trump received from Sen. John McCain following a sold-out address in Phoenix earlier this summer.
“When you attack and vilify the people at that rally as crazies, it does nothing to help Republicans win in 2016,” he asserted. “I’d like every single person at that rally to show up and vote in 2016, knock on doors with energy and passion, and turn this country around.”
As Western Journalism has previously reported, Cruz’s previous endorsement of certain aspects of Trump’s campaign has raised speculation that the two have formed an alliance of some sort.
Of course, Cruz acknowledged that the two candidates have many differences of opinion. At this point in the process, however, he said it is important to remember that the Republican’s reclamation of the White House should be every candidate’s primary motivation.
Responding to the media’s constant demands that he “comment on the salacious back-and-forth,” Cruz said he is “not going to play that game.”
The remarks echoed fellow GOP candidate Mike Huckabee’s recent advice for his party’s primary contestants.
Huckabee shared his concern that, upon the selection of the GOP candidate, “that person is so bitterly wounded that it becomes quite easy for the Democrat to step over his bloodied carcass and take the victory.”
