Texas Senator Ted Cruz defended his fellow Republican senator and Donald Trump‘s pick for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, on Fox News Wednesday, noting it was the Democratic Party that had a history of racism.
Cruz defended the vote to temporarily block Elizabeth Warren from debating on the Senate floor after she read a letter from Coretta Scott King that accused Sessions of trying to keep blacks from voting, calling it a false smear. “It’s one of the crutches — when the left doesn’t have any other arguments, they go and just accuse everyone of being a racist,” Cruz said.
