Former presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced Friday that he is voting for Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 election. Citing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as “wholly unacceptable,” Cruz announced on his official Facebook where his vote will be cast.
“After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump. I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word. Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.” the post said.
Cruz said there were six key policy differences that informed his decision, the first being the Supreme Court.
“We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices ‘in the mold of Scalia.'”
Second on Cruz’s list was Obamacare, which he described as the failed healthcare law hurting millions of Americans.
Energy is third; immigration is in fourth place; national security ranks fifth; with internet security rounding out the list.
“These are six vital issues where the candidates’ positions present a clear choice for the American people.” Cruz said. “If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country. My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.”
Cruz said the country is in crisis and Clinton is unfit to be the president.
