President Trump on Ted Cruz: “To Me He’s Not Lyin’ Ted Anymore, He’s Beautiful Ted” (VIDEO)
President Trump spoke to reporters from the South Lawn of the White House prior to departing for Houston Monday afternoon.
When asked about the term he coined for Senator Ted Cruz during the 2016 primaries, “Lyin Ted,” President Trump explained to reporters he buried the hatchet.
“To me, he’s not ‘Lyin’ Ted’ anymore. He’s ‘Beautiful Ted.’ I call him ‘Texas Ted,'” President Trump said.
And just like that, he re-branded Ted Cruz.
President Trump is joining Texas Senator Ted Cruz for a monster rally Monday night in Houston.
Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale announced on Sunday that due to over 100,000 RSVPs for the Houston rally with Ted Cruz scheduled for Monday, he had to fly to the Toyota Center early to help set up a tailgater outside!
People camped out the night before to attend the Trump-Cruz rally in Houston.
