President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally, Monday, Oct. 22, 2018, in Houston. Cruz said he put his "personal hurt feelings" aside and sought to work with Trump. Cruz called Trump a "pathological liar", "utterly amoral" and a "snivelling coward", among other choice phrases, while Trump attacked Cruz's faith, threatened to "spill the beans" on Cruz's wife and suggested the senator's father was involved in the assassination of John Kennedy. "He loves the people of Texas", Trump said.
Trump acknowledged that he and Cruz had a "very, very nasty and tough campaign", but he said they have "worked together very closely" since then.
People have been waiting in line since Sunday to get in to President Donald Trump's rally in Houston, Texas for Sen.
At the end of his rowdy one hour and 16 minute speech, Trump told the crowd: "You need to vote for Ted Cruz".
Trump is campaigning to stave off a Democratic push to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives and possibly the Senate, when they could derail or stall much of his agenda and increase congressional oversight and investigation of his administration.
Unvaccinated Florida Child Is First To Die In This Year’s Flu Season
- The Maryland Department of Health confirms the first cases of the flu in the state for the 2018-2019 influenza season. At least eight children in Florida died during the 2017-18 flu season, which was said to be the worst in decades .
Trump kicked off the bromance earlier in the day by giving Cruz a new nickname. Cruz's race against Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is closer than Republicans would like it to be, and Mr. Trump can't afford to lose any seats in the U.S. Senate that already lacks the number of Republicans he would like. And I said, "Don't worry about it".
Cruz added: "I look forward to campaigning alongside him in 2020".
"I like him a lot".
"The Democrats", Trump said, "have launched an assault on the sovereignty of our country".
O'Rourke said it is time for Texas to have a Senator "who could not care less about what the NRA or the gun lobby, or another political action committee thinks".
