GOP Spokesman Agrees That Ted Cruz Is An 'A**Hole'

Howard Terry | 24 July, 2016, 11:17

- Texas Sen. Ted Cruz tried to link arms with Republicans at the party's national convention but was booed lustily by delegates when he ended his speech without offering Donald Trump his endorsement - or even saying he would vote for the NY billionaire.

Julie Williams, a flutist who performed with the Cleveland Orchestra at a convention event on Monday, doesn't consider Trump to be a positive figure within the GOP and doesn't believe he's moving the party to the left on social issues. "We certainly don't want Hillary Clinton". "Republicans, Democrats and independents who helped build North Atlantic Treaty Organisation into the most successful military alliance in history would all come to the same conclusion: Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit and fundamentally ill-prepared to be our commander in chief". He blamed her for the rise of Islamic State militants and blasted her willingness to accept thousands of Syrian refugees.

"This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton", he said in Thurday's primetime speech.

The senator, who was his bitter rival during the primary contests, was booed off the stage by Mr Trump's supporters.

Tapping into public angst over recent racially-tinged shootings and seemingly indiscriminate terror attacks, Trump offered a tough-on-crime message that was reminiscent of Richard Nixon's election-winning strategy in 1968. "And now I am seeing him fight for his country", Trump, 34, said. The next president takes office on that date.

"Can anyone imagine our party's nominee standing before you and answering questions like this?" he said at one point.

Interrupted by chants of "Trump, Trump, Trump", Cruz paused and said with a smile, "I appreciate the enthusiasm of the NY delegation".

"She gave us enormous insight into him and the kind of man he is", said retiree Fernando C. deBaca, a 78-year-old New Mexico delegate.

He was introduced by his daughter Ivanka who announced a childcare policy proposal that the campaign had not mentioned before.

"I don't intend to say negative things about Donald Trump", said Cruz.

Trump will present himself as someone who can solve problems that have proved hard over the decades.

"I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people that cannot defend themselves..."

"I've been one of his harshest critics, but I really have to admit he delivered absolutely the right speech with the right tone that he had to do for a Republican nominee", said Dunning, also a member of the State Republican Executive Committee.

While Trump was successful in systematizing his campaign message - the Republican National Committee adopted his isolationist positions in its official party platform - he is unlikely to benefit from the optics of the week, which highlighted seething fissures in the party's ranks during a phase of the campaign when nominees typically enjoy a bump in the polls.

But Trump also showed why he is one of the most controversial U.S. politicians in living memory. All those positions go against prevailing Republican beliefs.

"We are a nation of immigrants".

Mr Trump has previously criticised the appearance of Mr Cruz's wife, Heidi. But when it was discovered her remarks repeated lines from a 2008 speech by Michelle Obama, the wife of Democratic President Barack Obama, the uproar lasted for three days.

The newly crowned Republican nominee had hoped for a triumphant turn at the podium, but he has instead been plagued by fresh political and policy headaches: His most tenacious primary rival, Ted Cruz, still refused to endorse him - and happily took the convention stage anyway.
