This Huge Secret About Ted Cruz’s Family Just Got Out–Yikes!

Ted Cruz is speaking out about his ill-timed trip to Cancun in the middle of Texas’ severe weather crisis that left millions of Texans without power and water. First, the senator defended himself by saying that he was simple appeasing his daughters who had “asked to take a trip with friends.”

Cruz added that he was “in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas.”

However, many critics took issue with the senator blaming his young daughters for his decision.

Later, Cruz admitted that he knew why people were upset. He told ABC13, “In hindsight, if I had understood how it would be perceived, the reaction people would have, obviously I wouldn’t have done it.”

He continued, “Leaving when so many Texans were hurting didn’t feel right, and so I changed my return flight and flew back on the first available flight I could take.”
