Senator Ted Cruz told ‘Meet the Press” on Sunday morning that if Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump win the election, “We will see the Second Amendment written out of the Constitution.”
Following the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said the 2016 election should be a “referendum” on the nation’s highest court.
The Texas senator told NBC’s Chuck Todd Sunday morning that he is looking forward to debating either of the Democratic presidential contenders on the future of the Supreme Court. However, according to Cruz, it isn’t just the two Democrats who could immeasurably alter the interpretation of the Constitution, in particular when it comes to gun rights.
“If Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders wins, or for that matter, if Donald Trump wins — whose record is indistinguishable from them on a great many issues — then we will see the Second Amendment written out of the Constitution,” Cruz said.
Cruz also said that should Trump or Clinton be elected, “we will see unlimited abortion on demand.”
Donald Trump threatened to file suit against Cruz today if he doesn’t stop running his dishonest ads.
