“I do not believe the world needs my voice added to that chorus of critics,” the Republican presidential candidate said at a Tuesday press conference.
“And listen,” Cruz added, “I commend Donald Trump for standing up and focusing America’s attention on the need to secure our borders.”
An outright ban on Muslims coming to the U.S. is not an attempt to secure our borders and to suggest that it simply highlights the bigoted views that Cruz holds towards Muslims as well.
You can never have too many voices condemning hatred and bigotry, yet Cruz thinks we have heard enough and decided to commend Trump’s statement instead.
