Texas Sen. 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.
Cruz was a disappointment, but I understand very few know the Constitution and the Supreme Court the way he does. An asset any president can use.
The two that I can think of is Rand Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano. Actually, the Judge would be good on the Supreme Court.
Like I said, very few.
I also Trust Judge Napolitano . And Judge Pirro !!
I liked Ted Cruz and backed him! But he showed me his true face at the Convention So I will always think of him as a RINO!! For a smart man That was not his Best Day!
What I want to know how did the Democrats turn Cruz in to a Useful Idiot? Or did he do it on his own?
IMHO; Cruz has more than enough hubris to do it all on his own. But it also fits into the Left's narrative that all citizens of the United States at birth are Art. II §I Cl. 5 natural born citizens.
If Teddy is so knowledgeable on the intent of the Founders when they wrote the Constitution, why did he IGNORE them and run for POTUS since he was NOT eligible according to Article II? Surely a "brilliant" constitutional lawyer like him MUST know the intent of the Founders?
No, Ted is NOT a good candidate for the SCOTUS as he violated Article II by running for POTUS as did Ovomit and little Marco, all of whom are ineligible for identical reasons namely they are NOT natural born citizens as per the intent of the Founders.
Then there is the pesky fact that Ted's wife Heidi is a New World Order global elitist and member of CFR. WHile there she co-wrote a paper on dissolving our national sovereignty so they could form their precious north america union. Heidi is therefore a TRAITOR and Ted knows it meaning he is GUILTY of Misprision of Treason by the law which he claims to know so well.
For doubters about Heidi's role in CFR and on the paper she supported, read this: https://themarshallreport.wordpress.com/2016/01/17/cruz-the-king-of...
Ted Cruz needs to head the house in Paul Ryan's place and work with the president. We need someone to take the senate. We need Gowdy as AG. We need the muslims out and the mosques torn down. Tare the mosques down and whoever objects cast out of the country. Our enemies are here, brought in by 0bama. We need to rid ourselves of the National Education Association and its grip on our children. Go back to reading the Bible and prayer in schools and any opening of governmental activity from national to state and the pledge of allegiance be respected. We need to put the ten commandments in every courthouse in the nation whether framed or in granit. We need to arrest all members of CAIR and ACLU then put them out of the country. We need to have a national week of prayer three times a year. We need the ending of abortions and have young mothers home to raise their kids and not work until they are of age. We need to mandate that they spare not the rod nor spoil the child.
WE NEED A GOD CENTERED NATION WHO WELCOMES THOSE WHO ARE READY TO JOIN US IN THIS KIND OF NATION... WHO AGREE WITH THESE PRINCIPLES. All others are not invited.
Like Trump who said that he has never asked God for forgiveness because he's "never needed to"? God centered like that?
Sorry to burst your bubble, but Cruz is a Senator - NOT a Representative; therefore, he isn't in a position to challenge ANYONE in the House, let alone Speaker Ryan. We'll need a REAL Conservative Congressman/woman to undertake THAT important task!
President Elect Trump should make amends with Sen. Cruz and appoint him to the Supreme Court. You talk about uniting True Conservatives, this is a sure way of doing that. That would also take away much of the divide in the Senate and allow TX to appoint another Republican conservative in his place.
Very few or any body knows the Constitution like Sen. Cruz and he would make a great Justice.
Speaking of appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court, I think I have found just the justice: Alabama Supreme Court Associate Justice Tom Parker
Surely if Obama can appoint such partisan justices as Sotomayor and Kagan, Trump can do the same?
