They arent calling him Lyin Ted anymore.
Sen. Ted Cruzs stock is rising among members of President Trumps base who feel double-crossed after the president offered amnesty to illegals in the immigration debate. Some who opposed Mr. Cruz in his 2016 run for the White House are even clamoring for the Texas Republican to mount a primary challenge to Mr. Trump in 2020. The newfound esteem for Mr. Cruz, whom Mr. Trump dubbed Lyin Ted when they battled for the 2016 Republican nomination, is coming from people who were die-hard supporters of the president.
Ted Cruz has kept his word to the American citizens, and we are watching this very, very carefully, said Sue Payne, a conservative activist in Washingtons Maryland suburbs who in 2016 championed Mr. Trump and reviled Mr. Cruz. Im getting very sick of Donald Trump right now. Hes turning his back on the people who put him in office.
The moves by Mr. Trump that have alienated supporters include the budget deal that threatens more skyrocketing debt and a tax cut law that could make people pay more in high-tax states.

Or endorsing Romney, among other moves.
Mr. President, stop listening to Ditch.
I haven’t warmed to Cruz. BS
Not me. I’m old enough to remember count copulot and glenn beck greeting ‘dreamers’ at the border with teddy bears and lollipops.
Rafael is making a comeback? LOL
Ted will make a fine SCOTUS justice, as soon as one of them retires.
Ooooh, Im getting some popcorn for this thread!
Surprised the Washington Times is trolling us by saying that we’re sick of Trump and ready for Cruz. That’s usually Washington Post or NY Times material.
Rafael will always be Lyin’ Ted.
What Cruz did at the convention is impossible to forgive.
No way, not now, not ever. Lyn’ Ted is and always will be Lyn’ Ted.
S.A. Miller is OUT TO LUNCH.
Warming to Cruz?
You have GOT to be joking.
Cruz is the last person I would support.
He ran an effective campaign. But I in no way, want him anywhere near the Whitehouse.
Not even a little bit.
I don’t support anyone from the senate, and I never will.
Those are 100 of the worst people on earth.
This article is garbage!
In other news, thousands of people are trying to enter North Korea to escape a life of decadence and wealth in South Korea, Newfoundland has become a tropical paradise thanks to climate change, and Patagonia has won the World Cup of Cricket, beating Lebanon 2 to 1 in overtime.
HELL NO...Robert’s BFF needs to NEVER be even thought of for SCOTUS; one of them is bad enough there.
There’s a trade off with chain migration, otherwise, about 1,000,000 “chain migration” immigrants come in year after year from what I can see. Experts need to tell us which is better and worse.
Just doing nothing, keeping with the status quo doesn’t seem to be a solution either.
They must be under FBI/CIA duress.
