Ted Cruz met with President-elect Trump late Tuesday afternoon, hours after the incoming Republican president convened a meeting of his top transition staffers to review key appointments he will need to make before his inauguration in mid-January.


"Sen. Cruz is pleased to have the opportunity to meet with President-elect Trump in New York today," Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said in a statement.


The Texas senator is not involved in Trump's transition operation, though Frazier said he is eager to assist the next administration with its goals of repealing Obamacare and pursuing "cost-effective, patient-centered health care reform," appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court, enforcing immigration laws and passing legislation "that will create more good-paying jobs for the American people."


"On behalf of the 27 million Texans he represents, the senator looks forward to assisting the Trump administration in achieving these objectives," she said.

I feel that Rudy would be good as SOS, Newt would be the better choice. Cruz or Trey for SCOTUS . Rudy would be better at AG or FBI , ( real law enforcer ) but he seems tired of law enforcement.

Actually, if I was Trump, I wouldn't give Cruz the time of day unless or until he promises, in writing, not to run for the presidency in 2020. 

Even still, for a man of Cruz's caliber to turn his back on the natural born Citizen clause is unconscionable. 

AND he wants to allow for thousands and thousands of more H1B visas.  Cruz.....NO

You know, I am beginning to look at this issue with a different view. Sure, laws should be firmly in place that will ensure qualified Americans fill these position first, but if Trump is to achieve his $250 billion in repatriated profits, the sheer numbers of foreign professionals must also be significantly increased.

You do realize that Trump is the one who backed out of the pledge back in March so none of the others were held to it, right?  And that Cruz DID what the pledge said, to back the GOP and to support (not endorse) the GOP candidate, which he did by speaking at the convention. Where's your outrage about Trump backing out first and all of the others who didn't even bother to go to the convention?

You also realize, of course, that according to SCOTUS on many occassions (such as Elk vs Wilkins), the 14th Amendment was a reconstruction amendment ONLY and Cruz is exactly right on his stand of it?  Have you read anything at all other than what comes out of the mouth of Trump who is so ignorant of the Constitution that he said that judges can pass bills??

Yes, a little. As you may know, SCOTUS hasn't directly addressed this issue.The 14th Amendment didn't change Art. II §I Cl. 5 natural born citizen requirement. Cruz was as much ineligible before the 14th Amendment as he was after the 14th Amendment. No one born with a foreign allegiance can possibly be an Art. II §I Cl. 5 natural born citizen as the term was originally used. 

Moreover, the British did away with assigned allegiances at birth in the 19th Century. For Cruz to be a natural born Canadian at birth his parents would have had to request Canadian citizenship rather than U.S. Citizenship, as at the time of Cruz's birth Canada did not allow dual citizenship. 

Not according to the courts, which is why Trump dropped his suit.  He knew he couldn't win. 

The suit wasn't brought by Trump, it was brought by supporters.  And second.....Just because this judge says it's not so doesn't mean it is.  Have you not seen how corrupt our government and court systems have become?

It didn't just go to one judge.  It's gone to many, unlike obama's.  Every one said that Cruz is eligible.  There are some good articles online that explains it. 

Then provide the links that validate your statements

"Everyone said that Cruz is eligible." Fair enough, but what do you say? Why do you think Cruz is eligible?

“He’s (Cruz) a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.

Cruz verified that he was Canadian when he renounced his citizenship in 2014. His campaign denied that he was Canadian, but his actions spoke otherwise.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
