Cruz: ‘Trump Campaign Is Run By Washington Lobbyists’

Republicans should reject Donald Trump because he is a member of the political establishment, according to Ted Cruz.

The Hill reported that the Texas senator told reporters in Indiana on Monday: “The entire Trump campaign is run by Washington lobbyists. It’s the Washington cartel. Donald Trump is the system. This is a fraud that the lobbyists in Washington are attempting to perpetuate on the American people. The stakes are too high.”

Cruz ridiculed Paul Manafort, whom Trump recently hired to lead his White House bid, as a “lobbyist campaign manager” because he has represented clients on Capitol Hill. “We are all used to politicians who betray us after they are elected,” the senator said. “Donald is betraying us before he’s elected and telling us.”

Cruz called it “big news” that he and John Kasich have decided to join forces in an effort to prevent Trump from winning the nomination. The Ohio governor plans to refrain from campaigning in Indiana, while Cruz stays out of Oregon and New Mexico. The hope is that Trump will lose the states if he has just one opponent in each primary, preventing him from earning the 1,237 delegates necessary to be victorious on the first ballot at the Republican national convention.

“Both campaigns agreed to focus our energies” to thwart Trump, Cruz explained. Kasich, during a Monday appearance at an Indiana diner, told reporters: “I’m not going to spend resources in Indiana; (Cruz) is not going to spend resources in other places.”
