Republican MELTDOWN After Ted Cruz Refuses To Endorse Trump

Republican MELTDOWN After Ted Cruz Refuses To Endorse Trump

Ted Cruz didn’t endorse the Republican nominee Donald Trump during his recent RNC speech. The reaction of the party has been furious. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Ted Cruz did not endorse Donald Trump in his much-anticipated speech to the Republican National Convention on Wednesday, instead urging Republicans to vote their conscience — to anguished reactions from Trump supporters in the room.

Cruz’s speech stole the show on what was intended to be a big night for the vice presidential nominee, Mike Pence — and it led to waves of fallout as the night went on, with Cruz being accosted by a state party chair and turned away from a powerful donor’s box in the arena.

“And to those listening, please, don’t stay home in November,” the prepared text of Cruz’s speech read. “Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
Cruz only mentioned Trump by name once in his speech, saying at the beginning, “I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night.””*
