Cruz: Trump will 'bargain away' rights

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says he will not “bargain away” certain rights in order to cut deals with Democrats in Congress if he is elected president.

“We’ve had too many deals in Washington. It’s why we’re bankrupting our kids and grandkids,” Cruz told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

That’s an attempt by Cruz to distance himself from Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, a billionaire businessman who says he will cut deals if elected to the White House.

“I am not going to compromise on the Bill of Rights,” Cruz said. “I’m not going to bargain away your religious liberty. I’m not going to bargain away your Second Amendment rights and sit down with [Senate Minority Leader] Harry Reid or [New York Sen.] Chuck Schumer and agree on Supreme Court nominees,” Cruz said.
