Following up on his pledge last week to support the Republican presidential nominee, Sen. Ted Cruz posted his thoughts after Monday’s debate between Donald Trump and his Democrat opponent for the White House, Hillary Clinton.
The Texas Republican’s early criticisms of Trump were that the billionaire businessman lacked conservative values, and as such, there was very little separating him ideologically from Clinton.
He saw none of that Monday night, however, and posted to Facebook that he now sees a clear contrast:
Tonight, a clear contrast was drawn between the two nominees. Tonight, Hillary Clinton made it clearer than ever that if elected President, our future will continue on the same path that is hurting millions of Americans.
Tonight we received insight into what a Hillary Clinton presidency would look like for Americans. We know that her policies would kill jobs, reduce wages, and continue the downward spiral our country has endured under President Obama.
He said that Trump, on the other hand, “had his strongest debate performance of the election cycle,” in which he “drew strong contrasts with Hillary on taxes, regulations, law and order, and the disastrous Iran deal.”
Cruz concluded that:
Rather than Hillary’s America, we need to take a different path. A path that would begin to restore our country from the damage it has suffered the last eight years. We need to unite to defend freedom and restore the Constitution. And Hillary Clinton made absolutely clear tonight she would not do so.
As busy as Trump and his staff were Monday, they took notice. Trump tweeted:
