Amid all the controversy, GOP presidential contender Ted Cruz continues to defend his friend and rival candidate, Donald Trump.
A political outsider much like the billionaire, Cruz was asked to comment on Trump’s incredible rise during an appearance Wednesday on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“He’s bold and brash, and he’s willing to speak the truth,” Cruz told host Sean Hannity. “And he’s taking on the Washington cartel.”
The junior senator from Texas — and fellow contender for the Republican presidential nomination — said Trump’s focus on illegal immigration and sanctuary cities is a key reason he’s getting so much support.
“I appreciate Donald focusing on illegal immigration,” Cruz said. “I’ve been proud to defend him for focusing on illegal immigration.”
Cruz calling also slammed Planned Parenthood, calling for defunding the nation’s top abortion provider in response to two undercover videos showing top officials discussing the harvesting of baby organs — videos Cruz called “gruesome.”
“They show senior officials at Planned Parenthood callously, heartlessly bargaining and bartering to sell the body parts of unborn children,” he said. “They’re sipping wine, they’re laughing about it.”
“If the Department of Justice wasn’t a partisan arm of the [Democratic National Committee], it should open an investigation and prosecute these individuals and Planned Parenthood as an entity,” Cruz told Hannity.
“We need to prosecute Planned Parenthood and also, we need to cut off every penny of taxpayer funding.”
