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.
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!
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
