It was one of those moments when you just have to smile and say…..”That’s my Trump!”
Muir asked Cruz “Senator, Cruz, You said Trump doesn’t have the temperament to be commander in chief. Do you stand by these words? “ Cruz looked a bit snide and cocky and remarked that it would be up to the voters to make that assessment, then he rambled on as he does when he doesn’t want to answer the question and is artfully avoiding it. When he completed his rambling, he smiled smugly.
Muir asked him again, “Senator Cruz, I did ask about Mr. Trump. You said he doesn’t have the temperament to be commander in chief. Do you stand by these words?”
Again, Cruz rambled on about his readiness and experience and danced all around the question with his double talk, avoiding to answer the direct question in his “I’m such a good guy and know a lot” type rhetoric. Muir moved on and Trump asked, “Am I allowed to respond?” Muir answered, “If you would like to respond Mr. Trump. At that moment Cruz had a pale look.
Trump boldly and firmly said, “First of all, I respect what Ted just said, but if you noticed, he didn’t answer your question. And that’s what’s going to happen- OK.
“That’s what’s going to happen with our enemies and the people we compete against. We’re going to win with Trump. We’re going to win. We don’t win anymore. Our country doesn’t win anymore. We’re going to win with Trump. And people back down with Trump. And that’s what I like and that’s what the country is going to like.”
So there you have it folks. Cruz is a feeble Canadian who backs down when caught face to face. Why else would he blow his big moment to stress his point? A point he obviously shouted behind Trump’s back, but when confronted with the real tiger Ted gulped and avoided pressing the issue. He cowered and withdrew. Trump nailed Cruz with live results for the world to see. This is what will happen in real time with Trump as Commander In Chief. Nations will think twice before playing games with a Trump presidency and the people he represents. A point very well made.
