Cruz won’t vow to support Trump if nominee
Ted Cruz repeatedly refuses to say if he’ll support Donald Trump if Trump is the Republican nominee.
NBC News “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd asked Cruz multiple times if he would support Trump, and Cruz never gave him a straight answer.
After Cruz gave several scathing critiques of Trump, Todd asked Cruz, “If he’s the nominee, I take it you can’t support him anymore, can you?”
Cruz responded that if Trump was the nominee, the race would be lost to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“But are you going to support him—” Todd began, before Cruz cut him off to repeat that Trump would lose to Clinton.
Todd again asked Cruz if he would tell his supporters to rally behind Trump. Cruz shot back that the “media would love for me to surrender to Donald Trump.”
