Cruz: Trump is the candidate of the Washington Lobby, part of the culture of foreign policy for personal gain

HOUSTON, Texas – Presidential candidate Ted Cruz released the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s foreign policy address today.

“Few speeches in campaign history have raised graver problems of public disclosure and accountability by a presidential candidate. Mr. Trump owes a full and immediate accounting to members of the media and the American public. Mr. Trump must confirm or deny reports in the media that others in the Washington Cartel’s industry of foreign policy for personal gain were involved in the drafting of this address — indeed, were the principal authors. In addition to the authors of the speech, he must fully identify the role and involvement of Mr. Manafort who is widely recognized for his entanglements with corrupt foreign regimes and anti-Democratic rulers.

“This speech is the most dramatic evidence thus far that Donald Trump fails the presidential test. With this address he is now the foreign policy candidate of the Washington lobbyists, even as he proclaims “America first,” he puts K Street lobbyists first. He is never going to fight the system, he is the system. He and Hillary Clinton are two sides of the same coin. She has made her millions from inside and Donald Trump has made his billions buying people like Hillary Clinton. Both are part of the culture of foreign policy for personal gain.”

    Trump’s willingness to negotiate with the palestinians over Israel is a total dis qualifier for the presidency.

    He wants to make Jerusalem America’s “Rock of Offense!”

    The only thing Trump knows about foreign policy is how many hotels/resorts he has in foreign countries including Muslim countries. A Muslim business friend of his rents an entire floor in Trump Tower. You can bet as president, his foreign policy is he won’t be stopping his Muslim friends from coming to this country – if you are Muslim but not a rich Muslim with ties to Trump, you won’t be able to get a Visa. King Trump helps himself and his rich friends and only those. The Trumpcult is so amazed at the amount of money he has, they are sure he will give them some and they will become rich. They are into major projection seeing themselves as him. I can’t believe this severely flawed man may be the president of this country.

    I am now in The Woodlands in a La Quinta Inn (because they allow dogs), 35 miles north of Houston. This trip from 20 miles north of Dallas to here is four hours of driving if you don’t stop. It is difficult to type on a pad while the car is bouncing on roads under construction which seems to be every road in Texas.
