Sen. Ted. Cruz (R-TX) told the Washington Examiner that it’s “idiotic” for Republicans to pretend Donald Trump is irrelevant when making plans for a 2024 presidential campaign.
Said Cruz: “There are a lot of candidates out there feeling their oats and boasting, ‘I’m running no matter what. I don’t care what Donald Trump says.’ Anyone who says that is lying. That’s an idiotic statement for someone to make who’s actually thinking about running.”
He added: “The whole world will change depending on what Donald Trump decides. That’s true for every candidate. That’s true of every potential candidate.”
