Cruz Endorses Trump

by Right Wing Fighter

Well, the big day has arrived. Even after his GOP Convention stunt, when he didn’t endorse Trump and basically told people not to vote for him, the tide has turned and Cruz has endorsed Trump.

In his Facebook post announcing the endorsement, Cruz said:

If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country.

My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.

[…]

Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.

A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him.

As I noted before, people are backing onto the TrumpTrain by arguing they are voting against Hillary Clinton. Cruz is following this trend.

He should have done it much sooner. It would have helped to undercut the #NeverTrump nincompoops and helped to strengthen Trump’s support among some members of the right. It still helps: but it would have been better if he did it farther out.

At least there’s one thing to say for Cruz: he didn’t preface his endorsement with paragraphs of anti-Trump virtue signalling, like Mark Levin did.
