Ted Cruz And Donald Trump Bury The Hatchet Over Oval Office Dinner

They say that all’s fair in love and politics, but that doesn’t mean that either of them don’t sting quite badly at times. On the political front, the barbs that get thrown back and forth often amount to shots fired - or fighting words, depending on the mood of the company you keep - but those barbs often get written off once whatever the specific politicians are fighting over is decided. Nonetheless, it’s hard to believe that some of the particularly biting ones don’t leave behind a tremendous welt - such as the ones that President Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), threw back and forth during primary season.

As the Daily Mail shares, it appears as that has been pushed by the wayside for now, as Cruz was recently a guest at the White House.

“Our family had dinner w the President & First Lady, who were warm & gracious,” Cruz shared on social media.

That post was accompanied by a photo of Cruz’s daughters with Trump, so perhaps the bread-breaking session was a clear sign of a truce between the former rivals. That’s pretty hard to imagine for anyone that witnessed the catty rhetoric that flew back and forth between the pair. The rhetoric would even see the respective men’s wives pulled into the fray via some unflattering pictures, and that can be a pretty tough thing to let go.

Nonetheless, here we are today with Trump in the White House and Cruz stopping by to kiss the ring. No word on what the conversation around dinner was like, but White House press secretary Sean Spicer offered up some insight during a recent briefing.

“I know that he enjoyed welcoming senator and Mrs. Cruz and his two daughters last night to the White House. They had a very enjoyable time and a very fruitful discussion, but it's something he's going to continue to do with members of both parties and both chambers and not just here in Washington,” Spicer said.
