GOP front runner billionaire Donald Trump and his chief rival for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), will take their battle on the road to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Saturday at the first day of the Breitbart News Network sponsored South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention.
Trump, who is attending an event with former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown in New Hampshire earlier on Saturday before heading to Myrtle Beach, will speak at 4:30 p.m. Cruz will hit the stage earlier at 2:20 p.m.
Both appeared at the same conference last year before they launched their presidential campaigns, but their speeches here this year will represent the first public battle between the two of them since—in Trump’s words—the “bromance” between the two front-running GOP presidential candidates ended on the debate stage two hours south in Charleston on Thursday evening.
Trump has been questioning Cruz over whether the Calgary, Canada, born Senator is a “natural born citizen”—which the U.S. Constitution requires of presidents—while Cruz has been fighting Trump over what Cruz says are Trump’s “New York Values.”
Those two major plot lines exploded in Charleston on Thursday at the Fox Business debate as both candidates outshone the rest of the field, most of which are establishment-backed candidates, as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich all jockeyed for position behind Cruz and Trump.
Also on Saturday, their fellow GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will speak 11:20 a.m. and several other major newsmakers including Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and Breitbart’s own Peter Schweizer, AWR Hawkins, and Stephen K. Bannon will speak.
Schweizer, the author of Clinton Cash, has upended the 2016 presidential race with revelations he made about Democratic frontrunner former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s and her husband former President Bill Clinton’s crony capitalist ties to the world’s financial elite.
Hawkins, Breitbart’s Second Amendment correspondent, has been leading the way in coverage of Americans’ right to keep and bear arms—something President Barack Obama has tried to take away from many Americans with his recent executive gun control actions—and the focus of that issue when it comes to the future of the U.S. political landscape.
Bannon, Breitbart’s Executive Chairman and the host of Breitbart News Daily which airs on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 from Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET, was named the “most dangerous political operative in America” in a recent thousands-of-words-long profile by Bloomberg Businessweek.
The conference lasts three days and on Sunday will see former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum speak at 2:20 p.m., in addition to David Webb from SiriusXM Patriot and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)—the congressman behind the successful effort to remove John Boehner as Speaker of the House.
Monday will see Dr. Ben Carson and South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson speak.
The conference, now several years deep and held again at the Springmaid Beach Resort here, is being live streamed by Ground Floor Video and distributed on Breitbart News Network throughout its entirety. Those who can’t attend in person but want to watch will be able to live stream the event on Breitbart.com.
In addition to the live stream, Breitbart News Network and SiriusXM Patriot are bringing Breitbart News Daily, Breitbart News Saturday and Breitbart News Sunday on the road to the convention here in Myrtle Beach for live coverage from the scene.
The Saturday show will air live from inside the Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET, while the Sunday show will air from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET and the Monday show will air from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. All three shows will air as scheduled on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125.
Also, on Saturday evening from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., several of Breitbart’s editors and reporters will be hosting a Breitbart Meet-Up at the Barrel Bar in Myrtle Beach. Details are available at this link.
Tell them to run together for a strong America and rebuild our military making it the strongest in the world before it's to late!!!
God Bless you both and God Bless the United States of America
Well said !!!
As a member of the Tea Party I support Trump 100%.
Tell them that they should bury any hatchet and, Trump just shut your damn mouth and concentrate on what is best for the people, not just yourself. I would have thought he would have been a little more intelligence and realized he might just be alienating a large segment of the electorate by going after Cruz with some damn dead issue.
Leave it to Mangus for subversively disclosing many of our feelings.
They should run together; Trump knows business and Cruz is a Constitutional Lawyer. They'd make an awesome team! First off secure our border and get a handle on the people crossing it. They should all be micro chipped so we know where they are. We need to abolish PC and restore 'free speech'. We need to 'reinforce' our Constitution and have Supreme Court justices that follow it! Please do not allow any Muslim immigration into America; we are a Christian nation and they will never assimilate. Outlaw abortion and defund PP. I do not care if gays marry but they should NOT have more 'rights' than the general population and we need to stop their lawsuits if a business owner 'chooses' not to provide a service to them based on their religious beliefs! We need to protect an individual's right to religious freedom. Obliterate ISIS and try Obama for treason (like that would ever happen). Get the UN out of the USA; they are a Communist organization who bodes evil intent for the USA! The UN will be used by Obama to implement Agenda 21 if he is their leader.
I agree with pretty much all you said except for the part on gay marriage. The Bible says it is an abomination & me & my family will stand on what Gods book says as the final word!
Anna, your last two sentences says it all. UN out of USA, and the USA out of the UN. If not, get used to the idea of being another third world disaster......lyle
First Things First. "You heard it here first. Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President. He was born in Canada of a Cuban-born father and an American-born mother. This means that he is not a "natural born citizen." When the Framers made that a requirement for President in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, they were citing Vattel's The Law of Nations (1756). The Vattel standard for "natural born citizen" was "born in the country, of two parents who were themselves citizens." Over time, US courts diluted the Vattel standard so that the test for citizenship based on natural birth only required that the individual be "born in the country." But they have never dispensed with that requirement. So, Cruz' birth in Canada makes him not eligible to be President. Now, the Washington Post has embraced this reasoning. I have been vindicated as a candidate and a Constitutionalist." -- Andrew D. Basiago --- FB: Andy2016!
