Ted Cruz on Immigration: I’ll Appoint Trump to Build the Wall When I’m Elected
Senator and Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz insists that if elected, he’ll secure America’s southern border by building a wall. But not him personally.
Cruz tells the Kuhner Report that, after he’s elected President, he’d appoint mogul and current primary competitor Donald Trump to build the wall.
“Would a President Cruz build a wall along the entire Southern border and if you were President, would you appoint Donald Trump to build that wall?” asked Kuhner. “Absolutely yes on both fronts,” responded Cruz.
Cruz was also asked about the flurry of recent attacks from Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen. Marco Rubio and others now that he is rising swiftly in the polls. A spirited Cruz said, “The fact that they’re shooting at you is a real strong sign. If they’re not shooting at you, you’re not doing much of anything…. The Republican establishment is in a panic and they’re in a panic because Conservatives are uniting behind our campaign.”
The first portion of the interview focused on foreign policy, most notably radical Islam, culminating with a pledge by Cruz to defeat radical Islam if elected President.
Segueing to domestic issues, said Cruz, “we need a President who stands with the working men and women, whether it is against amnesty; whether it is for sovereignty; whether it is against Obama Trade – and that is exactly where I am.”
