Texas Senator Ted Cruz may very well have wound up being the Republican nominee for president in 2016, had Donald Trump decided not to run. As a constitutional conservative, Ted would’ve made a fantastic commander-in-chief.
Cruz, a Harvard Law School graduate, is one of those people who has forgotten more about politics and American history than most people will ever know. Therefore, his opinion is worth paying attention to.
On Friday, the senator slammed Joe and co. like he got paid to do it.
From The Daily Wire:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Democrat President Joe Biden on Friday over a report from the Associated Press that alleged some Afghan men had forced girls to marry them so they could escape Afghanistan during the Biden administration’s chaotic withdraw from the country.
Cruz responded to the “credible and horrifying” report by blasting the Biden administration, saying that they had “no plan for a secure, orderly, and responsible withdrawal from Afghanistan.”
In a statement, Cruz said, “Instead, the President and Biden-Harris officials imposed arbitrary deadlines for political purposes. They rushed the evacuation to expedite moving tens of thousands of Afghans into the United States without thoroughly vetting them for security, health, and humanitarian concerns. I had called for refugees to remain in safe third countries while they were vetted, but instead, President Biden rushed to bring them to the United States. It was already clear his reckless decision threatened the security and health of Americans, from concerns over terrorism to evacuees testing positive for COVID-19. Today we learned that President Biden has also imported an acute human rights crisis into the United States.”
He added, “There have been multiple cases of child brides and polygamous families from Afghanistan arriving at military bases here in America as part of their botched evacuation. Reports even suggest that some of the exploitation was a direct result of the Biden administration’s chaotic evacuation process, a process that has enabled and incentivized coercion and abuse to the point where Biden Administration officials may well be complicit in child trafficking. Every Biden-Harris official linked to this disgrace should and must be held accountable.”
