Donald Trump has Ted Cruz’s back: GOP should hit Dems as hard as they hit Cruz

Donald Trump amused the crowd on his home turf Friday while introducing U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as the keynote speaker at the Palm Beach County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner.

“One of the reasons I like Ted Cruz so much, is that he’s not controversial,” Trump said at the event, held at his Mar-A-Lago Club, getting a laugh from the partisan audience.

“But the truth is, he shouldn’t be controversial because what he’s doing is right. … He took a stand, and it was a great stand, and had he really had a little backing, he would have negotiated one hell of a deal.”

Cruz might not have succeeded in killing Obamacare, Trump said, but he would have taken a big chunk out of it.

“I don’t understand the controversy,” the business tycoon said. “It’s common sense. It’s good government. It’s so many good things.”
