Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said CNN is holding back an interview he did regarding gun violence, after the network accused him of being “afraid” to come on the air.

Cruz tweeted Friday that he had addressed the issue of gun violence at schools in a 15-minute interview with CNN the day before.

“That’s funny, I spoke to CNN for 15 mins yesterday about proactive solutions to prevent gun violence (like passing the Grassley-Cruz bill—which Dems filibustered—that would add $300 million for school safety) yet CNN has aired NONE of it. Why not air the (entire) interview?” Cruz tweeted in response to CNN host Chris Cuomo on Friday.

The senator from Texas followed up that tweet with another, including a picture of him being interviewed at the Capitol.

“Here’s a pic of the @CNN interview — a 15-min exclusive given yesterday — that y’all still haven’t aired… (While falsely claiming I’m “afraid” to talk to CNN.),” Cruz tweeted.

These tweets are the latest in a spat between Cruz and CNN that began Thursday.
