From the Washington Examiner:
Excerpt: Sen. Ted Cruz said on Tuesday he is willing to help Donald Trump prepare for his next debate with Hillary Clinton.
“I am happy to help,” Cruz said on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Tuesday morning. “I have conveyed that to them.”
Cruz endorsed Trump on Friday, despite having given a speech at the Republican National Convention that was widely perceived as a snub of his erstwhile rival. He followed that endorsement with a battery of interviews to explain his decision to supporters, while also fulfilling the role of an enthusiastic good soldier.
The Texas Republican was quick to praise Trump’s debate performance. “I think he really went after Hillary, which was a good thing,” Cruz told Hewitt. “Anyone who is swooning at Hillary’s performance last night, that’s a pretty good indication that you’re a card-carrying member of the liberal media, especially in the first half hour. I think Donald very much had the upper hand over Hillary. Hillary was tentative and had no real answers. She was on the defensive the entire time.”
The next presidential debate will be held Oct. 9 in St. Louis, Mo.
Cool! Whether Trump takes him up on it or not, the gesture is great and a gracious olive branch. The real enemy is Hillary.
