Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) Refused to say Sunday if he looks at President Trump as a friend or an enemy who describes him just the “president.”

“He is the President. I work with the president to deliver on our promises,” Cruz said in an interview about ABC New’s “This Week.” “What I told the president the week after the election, I said,” Mr. President, I want to do everything humanly possible to roll up my sleeves and lead the battle in the senate to deliver on our promises. “”

Cruz and Trump acted sharply – and sometimes personal barbs during the 2016 campaign. Cruz called Trump a “pathological liar “,” totally amoral “and a” snappy coward “among other constituencies, while Trump attacked Cruz faith threatened to” wreck the beans “of Cruz’s wife and suggested that the senator’s father was involved in murder of John F. Kennedy.

In September 2016, after delivering a tacit non-approval by Trump under the Republican National Convention, Cruz finally returned and declared that he would support Trump as president.

The two are set to appear until ans at a campaign rally in Houston on Monday night. Cruz faces a competitive race against Rep. O & # 39; Rourke (D-Tex.) In his bid for a second term in the Senate.

“The choice is over,” Cruz told “This Week” when asked about the insults he and Trump lobbed on each other during the 2016 campaign. “On the 2016 election day, I really had the choice to do … If I put my own personal harmful feelings before representing Texas, it would have waived my responsibility.”
