Cruz defends his booed speech
Ted Cruz defends his non-endorsement by saying, “I did not say a single negative word against Donald Trump.”
He called it “troubling” that he was booed by “partisans” when he told the convention to vote for candidates in whom they believe.
“What I wanted to do last night is lay out the principles I believe we stand for as Republicans,” he went on to say. “In that speech last night I did not say a single negative word against Donald Trump.”
Cruz vowed not to say anything negative against Trump going forward.
The boos began Wednesday night during Cruz’s speech after it became clear he would not be endorsing Trump as the party’s nominee, urging people to vote their conscience.
