Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke at the Republican National Convention. Cruz did not take the opportunity to endorse Donald J. Trump. Jeff Roe, Cruz’s campaign manager, said that Trump and Cruz have some issues to resolve and Cruz was not expected to make an endorsement at the Convention. Cruz finished his speech to a chorus of boos from the conservatives gathered in Cleveland to nominate Donald Trump.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee didn’t pull any punches in a post on Facebook. Huckabee accused Cruz of trying to steal the spotlight. Huckabee said that Cruz put his own ambitions ahead of the country. Huckabee pointed out that Trump allowed Cruz to speak even though he hadn’t promised to endorse him.
Huckabee posted, “Trump trusted Ted and was rewarded with a betrayal, but the delegates in that arena booed Cruz off the stage and out of Cleveland.”
Cruz, along with all the other GOP candidates, had pledged to support the winner of the Republican nomination, but didn’t keep his word. That may be one of the reasons Trump calls him, “Lyin’ Ted.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee offered his position about Sen. Ted Cruz’s Republican National Convention speech Wednesday night, and it was merciless.
In a Facebook post, Huckabee addressed the “question of the night” — whether Cruz would honor his word and support the nominee or “earn the moniker ‘Lyin Ted’” given to him by the man who won that nomination.
We all know how that turned out, and Huckabee nailed it when he said Cruz rewarded Republican nominee Donald Trump with betrayal.
