Ted Cruz to Speak at GOP Convention, Reveals Endorsement Plans

Ted Cruz Donald Trump

Ted Cruz and Donald Trump met privately on Capitol Hill on Thursday, and social media was abuzz, speculating what was discussed and whether it would lead to Cruz endorsing the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor who repeatedly labeled him “Lyin’ Ted” during the GOP primary.

According to NBC News political reporter Alexandra Jaffe, Ted Cruz was quoted as saying that he was asked by Trump to speak at the upcoming GOP convention and Cruz said that he would be happy to.

Cruz also said that there was no discussion of an endorsement of Trump.

Jaffe also reports that Ted Cruz said he would use the convention speech to communicate unifying policies and principles that would give America a better direction going forward and to get back to the Constitution, a Constitution that has taken a beating under the eight-year rule of wannabe dictator Barack Obama.

Cruz’s campaign released an official statement confirming the meeting and what was discussed, adding that Trump asked Cruz for his counsel on future judicial nominations (see below).

Additionally, NBC reporter Frank Thorp confirmed that Cruz did not attend the meeting Trump had with GOP senators on Thursday.

Many Cruz supporters were concerned that the popular Texas senator would endorse Trump, who accused his father, Southern Baptist minister Rafael Cruz, of participating in the assassination of JFK.

They are now extremely relieved.
