during a Tuesday interview with SiriusXM hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on Breitbart News Tonight. Mansour asked Cruz, Would you be supportive of President Trump if he ran for reelection in 2020?
Cruz replied, I certainly assume so. I was supportive of and campaigned for President Trump in 2016, and I am very encouraged with the substantive policy victories we are getting, whether it is an historic tax cut bill, whether it is regulatory reform thats unleashing jobs, whether it is repealing the Obamacare individual mandate which I led the fight to do in the United States Senate whether it is nominating and confirming strong constitutionalists to the courts. On all of those fights Ive been working to lead the battle. Im content to continue working to lead that battle and defend our freedoms and defend the Constitution.
During the 2016 election, Cruz initially opted against endorsing Trump after Trump secured the Republican Partys nomination following a heated primary race that pitted the Texas senator against the New York real estate mogul. Republican convention goers booed Cruz during his speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, when he advised them to vote your conscience. Two months later, he endorsed Trump and assisted his presidential campaign.
Never Trump media figures lamented Cruzs support for Trumps campaign. Glenn Beck, a fervent Cruz supporter during the 2016 primary, described himself as profoundly sad following Cruzs endorsement of Trump, whom Beck strongly opposed. Beck later described America as a petulant child worthy of divine punishment for making the wrong choice in nominating Trump.
Since the election, Cruz has largely supported Trumps policies and agenda

Ted! You know what’s good for ya!
We got Ted, but can we get Beck?
If Lyn’ Ted did this, it is because he realizes without Trump’s support Beto will beat him in Texas. Probably will anyway.
And he only assumes so. Here we go again. He can never plainly say he supports Trump. Only assumes he will or he’s got to think about it.
I certainly assume so”
But not just yet.........
And anti-Cruz idiots on this forum will celebrate as the democRAT Senate convicts Trump under articles of impeachment approved by the democRAT House ...
Ted's support will help Donald both short and long term.
I believe this will help all GOP races, as it reduces the temptation for divisive squabbles among all our peeps.
Dems are likely upset over this. Bummer. ( heh heh)
These are weasel words of a liar “I certainly assume so. I was supportive of and campaigned for President Trump in 2016” He did not support Trump in 2016, barely since. He’s still a liar. Shame on anyone wrapping themselves around this, trying to rehabilitate Lyn’ Ted. Has he ever apologized for his many lies? No, never. And no one has ever once shown where he apologized for his stunt at the convention, as just one example. Or, lying about his citizenship? Or his lies about health insurance? Or... So, so many. Some of us don’t have short memories or are so enamored in this hated guy to forget or forgive his many lies. We don’t need Lyn’ Ted at all costs. We don’t need him at all. And sad people fall for what is a clear lie: “I certainly assume so. I was supportive of and campaigned for President Trump in 2016.” He did not support Trump in 2016!
How about we get Beck, skip Lyn’ Ted. At least Beck is entertaining and he tries. We could give him some slack as he is a recovering addict. I think he’s a genuinely nice guy, which definitely cannot be said of Lyn’ Ted. Can’t forgive Beck for wasting Cheetos though.
Oh, ok ..it’s a microphone in Ted’s hand.
Had to double check.
Ted finally bends the knee.
Good to know that Cruz won’t be running against Trump in the New Hampshire primary in 2020. Now if only Trump can beat John (”Vote for me because my father was a mailman”) Kasich, he should be good to go for the nomination.
So we are “idiots” to see through Lyn’ Ted, what does that make you, that ignores his lies, that is so into him that you ignore your conservative values, morals, ethics, whatever to support, to promote, to propagandize for a confirmed, unrepentant, and unprincipled liar? Is this really what you want to stand for and be known by?!
That Irishman who gave himself a hispanic nickname hasn’t got a chance against Senator Ted.
Come to think of it Ted is a hispanic who gave himself a waspy nickname.
Something about Ted gives me the willeys, but I agree with him on most issues and I will support him in the general every time even if I never vote for him in a primary.
And the 2016 primaries were pretty nasty all around. Ted can punch, but that was the first time he got punched back and he didn’t handle it real well.
It didn’t help much when Ted finally agreed to support Trump and manned phone banks and the next day or so the Entertainment Tonight story dropped.
What on Earth? Did you even see the primary numbers?
This is Democrats with historically high turnout and Republicans not even flexing their muscles yet. I'm not one to get over confident, but the numbers beat idle uninformed speculation by non Texans any day of the week.
I'll take Cruz but who wants that insane idiot Beck?
