Cruz: ‘I Will Support the Republican Nominee’ But I Intend the Nominee To Be Me
CRUZ: "Listen, if Donald becomes president, who the heck knows what he would do? Even Donald doesn’t know what he would do. And I think the challenges facing this country, they’re too grave to roll the dice and risk losing the Supreme Court for a generation, risk yet more economic stagnation, and risk, on foreign policy, allowing radical Islamic terrorism to continue to rise and threaten America."
TAPPER: "But, just for the record, even though you think all of that about Donald Trump, you still would support him for the presidency if he gets the nomination?"
CRUZ: "I — I will support the Republican nominee, but I’m working very hard, and I intend for that Republican nominee to be me."
