It was May 3, and Ted Cruz , who now sounds like a prophet, was warning voters that Donald Trump didn’t believe any of the tough talk on immigration and amnesty that had made his campaign so appealing to a certain segment of Republican voters.
In what was the most powerful language used in the campaign by Ted Cruz, an epic rant against the man who had just insinuated that his father, Southern Baptist minister Rafael Cruz, was somehow involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Cruz held nothing back as he exposed Donald Trump’s inability to tell the truth.
Cruz pulled absolutely no punches:
“This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth.
And in a pattern that I think is straight out of a psychology textbook, his response is to accuse everybody else of lying.
He accuses everybody on the debate stage of lying. And in simply a mindless yell, whatever he does, he accuses everyone else of doing.
The man cannot tell the truth but he combines it with being a narcissist. A narcissist at a level I don’t think this country has ever seen.
Donald Trump is such a narcissist that Barack Obama looks at him and goes, ‘Dude, what’s your problem?!’”
“Everything in Donald’s world is about Donald,” Cruz contended, further stating that if you hooked Trump up to a lie detector test, he could pass it with flying colors because he actually believes his own lies at any given moment.
“The man is utterly amoral,” Cruz charged. “Morality does not exist for him,” he said, bringing up the smear Trump launched before the Wisconsin primary against Heidi Cruz. Cruz said that if he doesn’t think Heidi is attractive then perhaps he’s legally blind as well.
Ted Cruz then warned that Donald Trump is going to betray his supporters on a variety of issues, including amnesty, stating that Trump is probably laughing at them behind his back as he doesn’t believe his own rhetoric.
“Donald is cynically exploiting that anger and he is lying to his supporters. Donald will betray his supporters on every issue.
If you care about immigration, Donald is laughing at you. And he’s telling the moneyed elites, he doesn’t believe what he’s saying, he’s not going to build the wall — that’s what he told the New York Times.
He will betray you on every issue across the board.”
It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that Donald Trump has flip-flopped on amnesty, his key issue (building the wall may come next), as he has never been for strict border control or been against amnesty for illegal aliens until he decided to run for office.
Notice this 2013 tweet in which Trump, in the heat of the Gang of Eight amnesty fight that Ted Cruz worked to defeat, expressed support for amnesty, sounding more like amnesty supporters Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush than the border hawk he pretended to be during the GOP primary.
Congress must protect our borders first. Amnesty should be done only if the border is secure and illegal immigration has stopped.

Also in 2013, Trump met with a group of so-called “DREAMers,” children of illegal alien parents who are living in the United States illegally.
The group met with Trump to convince him to support amnesty and Trump left the meeting telling the group, “You convinced me.”
In 2012, Trump, a lifelong New York liberal masquerading as a conservative Republican, called RINO Mitt Romney’s squishy immigration plan “maniacal” and “too mean-spirited,” while praising the Democrats open border policies, touting their “kindness” toward illegals.
