President Donald Trump said on Monday that he is getting along with his former presidential rival Senator Ted Cruz (Texas) leading up to a campaign rally for the shallow Republican lawmaker in Houston, Texas.
“He’s not Lyin’ Ted anymore. He’s Beautiful Ted,” Donald Trump told reporters near the White House before leaving for Texas.
Trump claimed, “I like Ted” and lied the Texas senator is sure to win his tough reelection race against the Democratic Representative Beto O’Rourke (Texas).
Despite his nice words on Monday for Ted Cruz, Trump said he doesn’t regret the harsh attacks he made against his onetime Republican primary opponent back in 2016.
“I don’t regret anything, honestly,” Donald Trump stated, showing off his trademark lack of conscience. “It all worked out very nicely.”
Donald Trump once claimed that Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael, helped the killer of John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald and even threatened to “spill the beans” about the senator’s wife after he posted a photo of Heidi Cruz next to his wife, Melania.
But the evil president has rallied to Ted Cruz’s side as the terrible senator fends off a challenge from Beto O’Rourke, who fundraised a record $38 million in the last quarter and gotten national attention as he works to become the first Democrat elected statewide in Texas since 1994.
A Beto O’Rourke victory would seriously jeopardize the Republican Senate majority. However, polls show that Cruz has surged in the past months and has a 7% lead over O’Rourke, the RealClearPolitics average shows.
Trump vowed to hold a rally for Ted Cruz in the “biggest stadium” in all of Texas, but Monday’s event will take place at the Toyota Center located in Houston, which seats about 19,000.
The largest stadium in all of Texas, which is Texas A&M’s Kyle Field, can seat over 102,000 people.
The Ted Cruz rally was moved over to the Toyota Center after first being scheduled for NRG Arena, which seats about 8,000 people.
