Ted Cruz Just Made A Big Time Announcement About Trump That Will Thrill Supporters Of Both

Cruz responded to one reporter when asked if he thought that Donald Trump would target him now that he had pulled into the lead in Iowa.

Senator Ted Cruz recently pulled ahead of Donald Trump in one Iowa poll for the Republican presidential nomination; but, despite the close race, Cruz doesn’t harbor enmity toward his close rival.

Cruz responded to one reporter when asked if he thought that Donald Trump would target him now that he had pulled into the lead in Iowa. He said: “I continue to like and respect Donald Trump. While other candidates in this race have gone out of their way to throw rocks at him, to insult him, I have consistently declined to do so and I have no intention of changing that now.”

Today, Cruz spoke about Trump also working in a possible Cruz administration: “There is no doubt that Donald Trump would be a phenomenal negotiator with China and if you look at TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), I have come out against TPP, it is an incredibly long and complicated mess of a bill.”

Cruz also said: “It has more pages than the Gang of Eight amnesty bill and Obamacare bill combined. And I support free trade, but free trade that benefits American workers- that opens up foreign markets to our products, to our agriculture, to our goods and services. There is no doubt that Donald Trump would be a tremendously effective negotiator to help us open up foreign markets.”

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is an extensive free trade agreement between the U.S., Canada, and 10 countries that was negotiated for many years; its drafting was finished on October 5th, 2015.

Trump has spoken out against the agreement, saying: “The TPP is a horrible deal. It is a deal that is going to lead to nothing but trouble. It’s a deal that was designed for China to come in, as they always do, through the back door, and totally take advantage of everyone. It’s 5,600 pages long, so complex that nobody’s read it. This is one of the worst trade deals. And I would, yes, rather not have it. We’re no losing over $500 billion in terms of imbalance with China, $75 billion a year imbalance with Japan.”
