One of the Trump administration’s staunchest allies has turned his back on the President. During the most recent episode of “The Verdict with Ted Cruz” last week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) accused President Trump of “irresponsible rhetoric.”
Cruz went on to back down on previous claims that rampant voter fraud changed the results of the election.

“He said over and over again, he won by a landslide, there was massive fraud, it was all stolen everywhere,” Cruz stated. “That evidence, the campaign did not prove that in any court. To make a determination about an election it has to be based on the evidence, and so simply saying the result you want, that’s not responsible and you’ve never heard me use language like that.”
Several weeks ago, Cruz lead the push to expose voter fraud in battleground states. Some are saying his remarks could be seen as a betrayal.
