I am greatly honored by the endorsement of Senator Cruz. We have fought the battle and he was a tough and brilliant opponent. I look forward to working with him for many years to come in order to make America great again.
Donald Trump in a statement on Friday after receiving the endorsement of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
In July, however, Trump said he would not accept an endorsement from Cruz.
The Facebook post represented a sharp turnaround for the Texas senator, who declined to endorse Trump during a speech at the Republican National Convention.
It also comes after Cruz harshly criticized Trump during the primary, when the New York businessman falsely suggested Cruz's father may have played a role in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Cruz called Trump a "pathological liar" in an emotional conversation with reporters.
With the first of three presidential debates around the corner, Hillary Clinton's campaign is urging moderators to quickly correct any lies from Donald Trump.
"This is the role of the moderator ... to call out those lies, and do it in real time," said Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton's communications director, on a Friday conference call with reporters. “To not do that is to give Donald Trump a very unfair advantage.”
The campaign released a long list of Trump statements that were ruled false by fact checkers, such as his claim he opposed the 2003 Iraq war before it started or that Clinton wants to abolish the 2nd Amendment.
Donald Trump has put a Utah senator at the top of his list of new potential Supreme Court picks. The Republican’s response: Thanks, but no thanks.
The Republican presidential nominee is set to release a list of 10 additional names he would consider to fill a vacancy on the high court. He first proposed potential picks after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and the Senate’s refusal to consider President Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to replace Scalia.
According to NBC News, Sen. Mike Lee is among the new group, the only elected official on a list that includes appeals court, district court and state supreme court judges.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan doesn’t think Donald Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims traveling to the U.S. is “remotely possible.”
“Politics is a marathon and it's a long process,” Erdoğan said in a translated interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday. “Many things can be said throughout the rallies before elections and things will turn out to be very different post-elections.”
After the primaries, Trump altered his proposed ban to target those from countries affected by terrorism, but critics say even the modified program could be overly broad and difficult to implement.
No, President Obama doesn't agree with Donald Trump's view that life in America today has never been worse for African Americans.
"I think even most 8-year-olds would tell you that whole slavery thing wasn’t very good for black people. Jim Crow wasn’t good for black people," the nation's first black president said in an interview with ABC from the new National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington. "What we have to do is use our history to propel us to make even more progress in the future."
Obama also addressed the civil unrest in Charlotte, N.C., in response to another police shooting, suggesting that demonstrators should find more constructive ways to channel their energies.
