Cruz Has Strong Message for CPAC Regarding Donald Trump’s Future

That’s what you call a “mic drop moment”.

There is a whole lot of uncertainty out there regarding what’s in store for the Republican Party in general, and how Donald Trump may fit into that future.

Trump was a bombastic, unique Commander in Chief, and not everyone within the GOP was fully in support of his actions and behavior, even if they were largely aligned with him policy-wise.  This has allowed some Republicans to speak out against The Don in the time since he’s left office.

Others, like Texas Senator Ted Cruz, have a much different take on how Trump fits into conservatism as a whole.

Sen. Ted Cruz says the GOP is the party of the working class and vows that former President Trump will remain a power player in the Republican Party.

Cruz, the conservative two-term senator from Texas and former and likely future Republican presidential candidate, used his speech Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference to paint a populist portrait of a GOP transformed during Trump’s four years in the White House.

“The Republican Party is not the party just of the country clubs. The Republican Party is the party of steelworkers and construction workers and pipeline workers and taxi cab drivers and cops and firefighters, and waiters and waitresses and the men and women with callouses on their hands who are working for this country. That is our party and these deplorables are here to stay,” Cruz said to loud cheers.

And then came the soundbite.

And Cruz, who repeatedly traded fire with Trump during their acrimonious battle for the 2016 GOP presidential campaign but who turned into one the president’s biggest allies in Congress during the Trump administration, charged that Democrats “want him to go away.”

“Let me tell you this right now: Donald J. Trump ain’t goin’ anywhere,” Cruz said to a standing ovation.

Trump will be addressing CPAC later in the week.
