Glenn Beck, the conservative media personality, endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential bid on Saturday, the only endorsement he has made during a four-decade career.
He praised the first-term Texas senator’s deep faith and consistent conservatism but spent far more time talking about Donald Trump, Cruz’s main competition when this state holds the first nomination contest in the nation Feb. 1.
“Mr. Trump is saying over and over again, ‘I will make America great again. I will make America great.’ That’s not true. It’s not even possible. Each of us as individuals living our own dreams, making our own way, charting our own course, that is what makes America great,” Beck told hundreds of people gathered in the chilly gymnasium of Faith Baptist Bible College, adding that Trump’s remarks were “arrogant” and “dangerous.”
