Letter: Cruz’s endorsement of Trump is shameful

Cruz’s endorsement of Trump is shameful

Last week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz suddenly endorsed Donald Trump. This move was an embarrassing decision based totally on politics.

Since July, when Cruz refused to endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Trump’s behavior has not changed. The thing that has changed, however, is that party Chairman Reince Priebus suggested that Republicans who refuse to endorse Trump may not be allowed to run in the future. Cruz’s endorsement came only a few days after Priebus made his announcement.

Unfortunately, many politicians make their decisions based on their own future, not what is best for our nation. Although Cruz claims to be different from typical politicians, his actions show that he only cares about his own political career.
