It happened: Ted Cruz has caved and publicly endorsed Donald Trump, much to the dismay of his supporters and most voters in general. Click inside to see what people are saying about Ted’s decision below.
Well, that was slightly unexpected! Ted Cruz, 45, announced that he is backing presidential candidate Donald Trump, 70, as the next president of the United States in a lengthy Facebook post on Sept. 23. This move comes as somewhat of a surprise after Ted originally condemned the idea of supporting Donald, claiming he would not vote for someone who has personally attacked his family. Now he’s totally changed his tune.
“This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election,” he began. “After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.”
Ted went on to explain why “even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable.” “If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country.
My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that,” he said. Yikes.
Voters remember his past feud with Donald pretty vividly, especially since Donald launched attacks on Ted’s wife, Heidi Cruz, numerous times in the early stages of the election. Not only did he insult Heidi by comparing her to his own wife, Melania Trump, but he also threatened to “spill the beans” on her on social media. Thankfully, nothing ever came of those empty threats — though it’s still pretty bizarre that Ted would want to endorse Donald after all of that.
