There has already been a slew of mudslinging taking place in this young presidential race, but two candidates, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, have been overly cordial, leaving some to speculate, especially after their recent private meeting, that the two outspoken Republicans have formed some sort of political alliance.
According to various reports on Thursday, Ted Cruz reached out to Donald Trump, inviting him to attend a rally, organized by the Cruz team, to protest against the Obama-Kerry Iran nuclear deal in Washington, D.C., in September.
Trump announced that he would be attending the event following a speech in South Carolina, saying that he and Cruz, who he referred to as a “friend” and a “good guy,” were teaming up to do “something very big over the next two weeks in Washington.”
“It’s essentially a protest against the totally incompetent deal that we’re making with Iran,” Trump told reporters. “And by the way, even if you break it up, they’re gonna get a $150 billion…And you know what I’d do? I wouldn’t give them the money — I don’t care what the deal [says] — I wouldn’t give them the money,” Trump promised.
Cruz campaign spokesperson Catherine Frazier told TheBlaze that the event will be sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Policy, and the Zionist Organization of America.
“We are thankful for all their hard work on this effort and will have more details on time, date, and location as they are finalized,” Frazier said.
