Ted Cruz Can’t Read the Room, Says he May Run for President Again Because It’s Fun, Among Other Things

When asked by Tom Basile on NewsMax what Ted Cruz is thinking about the 2024 presidential election, he gave a surprising answer, or perhaps not too surprising for some. Although it hasn’t been announced, many are thinking and hoping former President Trump runs again in 2024. Although this has a good chance of happening, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) hasn’t thrown his full support behind that idea yet.

Perhaps his speculation is based on whether or not Trump runs, but many would rather see Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis run if Trump does not, putting Cruz at MAYBE a distant third place. Cruz, nevertheless said this to NewsMax’s Tom Basile when asked:

“You ran for president in 2016, are you considering a 2024 presidential run?” said the host.

“Well, sure. I’m certainly looking at it. I’ll tell you, 2016 was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life. We came incredibly close. We had an incredible grassroots army, 326,000 volunteers nationwide. So, whether it is in the Senate or in a presidential campaign, I’m committed to fighting to defend free enterprise, freedom, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and right now, the battleground is the U.S. Senate.”

He continued” The battleground is fighting back against Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and the incredible threat they are posing to our liberty. I’m proud to be leading that fight right now in the U.S. Senate.”

In 2016, Cruz was one of Trump’s biggest contenders, and the primary battle was very bitter. Cruz said he wanted to beat Trump, and Donald Trump questioned whether or not Cruz, born in Canada, was able to legally run. He also made insinuations that Cruz’s father was perhaps the “zodiac killer”. The liberal media tried to use that to attack Trump’s credibility, although he won in 2016 anyway.

Time will tell if Ted runs for sure, throws his support behind Trump or DeSantis, or possibly a Trump/DeSantis ticket, or stays in the Senate. In the meanwhile, the 2022 election cycle is gearing up, with some predicting a Republican takeover, although we are skeptical at that for now.

With changing demographics, future elections will be unpredictable, to say the least. Immigration is shaping the future of politics, and the Democrats are not only using this to their advantage, but they’re also advantageously pushing for more immigration in an effort to get even more votes, despite the arguable cultural effects that too much legal and illegal immigration can cause in a short period of time.
