Sen. Ted Cruz said Monday that GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump views protesters as disloyal people worthy of punishment and that the best response to Mr. Trump is to defeat him at the ballot box, reiterating his own pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee in the fall.
Mr. Cruz re-upped criticism of Mr. Trump for recently having rally attendees pledge their support to him, likening it to an action kings and queens demand of their subjects.
Its also reflected in his treatment of protesters, where anyone whos a protester is disloyal and must be punished, Mr. Cruz told reporters in Illinois ahead of the March 15 primary there.
The only pledge that I am interested in, the only hand-raising that Im interested in is on January 20, 2017, when I hope to raise my right hand with my left hand on the Bible and pledge to each and every one of you that I will preserve, protect [and] defend the Constitution and fight for the hard-working taxpayers, Mr. Cruz said.
That is a question the voters are asking: At what point do we say enough is enough? Mr. Cruz said. If Donald Trump is the nominee, he is a disaster, and the answer is to beat him.

Ted Cruz is unhinged.
We are suppose to trust Ted Cruz the Principled to be the Strongest Constitutional Conservative?
But when an easy slam dunk issue like the Chicago riots presented Ted Cruz plays politics instead like a standard issue linguine spined GOPE politician.
If he is willing to cave to the false media meme rather then defend unreservedly defend Constitutional Principals of Free Speech and Free Assembly, what else is he willing to cave on when the pressure is on?
This guy is f***ing insane.
I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that they're highly disruptive, possibly violent, and should be removed.
Trump sees protesters as a potential personal danger.
Only a fool would think otherwise in todays political climate.
I’m really tired of Cruz’s attitude/ snarky rhetoric!
Cruz is using the assault on the Constitutional rights of conservatives like FReeper Bushwon in Chicago as a platform to attack Trump. This is pure and unadulterated demagoguery. Disgusting.
every day he sounds more and more like the establishment if that is even possible with him now.
F off Ted Cruz.
Holy cow. I’m a Trump fan, but even I can’t believe he’d say something this stupid.
Good grief....does he know how stupid this sounds?
What is he thinking?
If they are paid agitators, then I say “Hell yeah” they deserve to be punished.
What a big disappointment you are.
Cruz attacking Sessions was interesting.
Is there anyone left in the Senate that sides with Cruz right now? Maybe Mike Lee.
“Ted Cruz: Donald Trump sees protesters as disloyal people who must be punished”
Ted is jealous because the left doesn’t take him serious enough to send protestors.
Trashes Trump supporters, embraces leftist thugs. Everything you need to know about Cruz!
Rush defending Cruz right now.
