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.

Gowdy is perfect for AG position; Newt with his vast knowledge of history and experience in government would be an asset as SOS; Cruz is a true constitutionalist and would be perfect as a Supreme Court Justice, and I'm not sure it's a good idea to have him in the Senate anymore just because he could end up being a thorn in Trump's side.  I still don't trust him.  Rudi is a whole different situation.  He needs to be in Trump's cabinet, but in what capacity is a puzzlement.  Those are my choices, but I have no doubt President Elect Trump will make wise choices and who ever  he selects will be fine with me. 

Repeal Obama Care.  Government needs to stay out of social issues, education and health care.  Private sector is a much better option for health care.   EPA should not be a position to over regulate us, causing outrageous expense to all of us to the point of putting businesses out of business.  Criminal illegals that have been released back into our society need to be deported ASAP and a cap needs to be put on the amount of immigrants we will allow on an annual basis.  NO MORE REFUGEES.  The ones that are here need to be dealt with, i.e., they need to be vetted and sent back to wherever they came from if they don't pass muster.  Federal funds should not go to states with sanctuary cities, and NO HEALTH CARE OR WELFARE BENEFITS to non citizens.  Our own welfare recipients need to succumb to drug testing before receiving benefits.  Parents of underage children who commit crimes need to be held accountable for those crimes.  My list is a long one, but I'll stop here..

Ryan needs to be replaced and Pelosi should just bend over and kiss her rear goodbye.  I don't care where she ends up, Siberia would suit me just fine.

But Trump is all for single payer healthcare.  He's also not said a word about withdrawing federal benefits to illegals. 

GET A GRIP.  He's not even sworn in yet....not much he can do until then.  If ALL you can do is rip the President Elect, you need to consider visiting a different site.

Once again....................NO TROLLING

Cruz needs to STAY RIGHT WEHRE HE IS!!!! AS U.S. SENATOR FROM TEXAS . . .

Cruz is needed as a senator to help win a victory in the Senate over 'ObanaCare' - Tax reform - Re-pealing the many EPA regulations - Building The WALL along OUR Southern Border - & a WHOLE SLEW of other ITEMS President Trump wants to impliment

I hope Trump told him to bring his proof of being a US Citizen.  People who have nothing to hide, hide nothing!

I have always been warned to beware of a wolf in sheep's clothing.  His Globalist wife scares me almost as much as he does.

I can't find one single thing in your comment that is true.  The courts have stated that Cruz is a natural born citizen.  There are some good articles online that explain it.  His wife isn't a globalist.  There are some good articles that explain that, too.  

Trump hired an ex corner office Goldman Sachs exec to be his campaign finance manager...who was also an ex Soros fund mananger.  He now wants to make a GS exec head of the treasury.  Fox guarding the hen house??  These kinds of things should scare you.  Heidi Cruz has no power. None. Even if Cruz was elected, she'd have no power.  You need to be scared of who Trump appoints!

Tad Taylor,

Cruz never presented the required documentation or any evidence that he is a citizen. He had all his files surrounding the issue sealed, so how do you know if he is a citizen, much less a natural born citizen?

I agree we need to exercise caution on who is in our government, including Cruz as I for one have no reason to believe he is even eligible to hold the position he currently holds.

Heidi Cruz returned to her very powerful position at Goldman Sachs and she has held other powerful positions of global proportions, to deny that is to deny history. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heidi_Cruz


If the "courts" (plural) have determined Ted Cruz to be a natural born citizen, there would be public records of the determination of the courts, and to date, I have not seen one such official court document to that effect, much less more than one. Please provide the evidence, not an article but court evidence.

Thank you,

Carolan

 Ted Cruz, needs to take his sorry butt back to the UK, and while he is at it, he needs to take his CFR Buddies with him.

 The man is Loyal to only one thing, and thats the Crown Of England.

ALERT ALERT

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.”
