Ted Cruz Just Made 1 Bold Statement That Will Land Him In HOT Water With 'The Donald' Click to Tweet

Sen. Ted Cruz made a bold prediction Thursday that Donald Trump would not become the eventual nominee of the Republican Party for president of the United States. In a radio interview with Rita Cosby of WABC-AM, Cruz said, “In time, I don’t believe Donald is going to be the nominee, and I think in time the lion’s share of his supporters end up with us.”

Cruz’s bold prediction comes at a time when his poll numbers are not so promising. According to Real Clear Politics’ latest numbers, Cruz trails Trump by double digits in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, California, and New Hampshire polls. Even with the low poll numbers, Cruz remained hopeful and explained his prediction.

I think his involvement has been tremendously helpful to my campaign because it has framed the central question of the primary as: Who will stand up to Washington?” Mr. Cruz said. “And if that’s the central question, the natural next question, that any voter will ask is okay, well who actually has stood up to Washington? Who has a record in that regard?”

Cruz’s reference to standing up to Washington possibly stems from when he equated President Obama’s IRS scandal to Nixon’s Watergate scandal. Cruz also criticized the president’s Iran deal, calling it “staggeringly bad” and claiming it will make the Obama administration the “world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism.”
