“I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word,” Cruz added.
“Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.”
The Texas Senator said there were six policy reasons that helped him reached his decision. Among them that the new president will be responsible for appointing as many as four new justices for the Supreme Court.
“We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue,” wrote Cruz. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”
The other five reasons were Trump’s willingness to repeal Obamacare, to reduce regulations for the oil and gas industry, revoking executive amnesty for undocumented immigrants, his willingness to stop unvetted refugees and Trump’s opposition to Obama’s plan to “hand over control of the Internet to an international community of stakeholders, including Russia, China, and Iran.”
