While Donald Trump branded Ted Cruz “Lyin Ted” during the Republican primary, it looks like the two have made up for now.
By September, after remaining silent on the matter, Cruz finally endorsed Trump (and eded up voting for him). “This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election. In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.” After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump” he wrote.
Now, Trump is returning the favor. As Red State Watcher reported:
Texas Senator Ted Cruz is set to be nominated for a position on the Supreme Court by President-elect Donald J. Trump if current trends hold, a source close to the process tells GotNews. The source told GotNews that “a deal” is being cut which would see Cruz nominated to the Supreme Court on the condition that a pro-Trump Republican could be found to replace Ted Cruz in the Senate.
It is unclear whether Cruz would be immediately nominated to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who died earlier this year, or if his nomination would come later. While Cruz was not on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court picks, he undoubtedly fits the bill as a staunch conservative constitutionalist.
Now THAT would be awesome! His status as a constitutionalist is one of the reasons he was one of the Republicans I had hoped would win the primary early on. He obviously didn’t make it as a presidential candidate, but his extensive knowledge would be an invaluable asset on the Court.
Of course, while Trump may not actually think that Ted Cruz is “Lyin Ted” – we here at Freedom Daily completely agree that Jeb! is low energy.
