Ted Cruz today strongly implied that Donald Trump was responsible for the Muslim attacks in Belgium because of comments Trump made yesterday about NATO. Speaking with Wolf Blizter, Trump said the US is paying disproportionately for NATO, that Europe should shoulder more of the responsibility for its own defense.
“Well, I will say, it is striking that the day after Donald Trump called for America weakening NATO withdrawing from NATO we see Brussels, where NATO is headquartered, the subject of a radical Islamist terrorist attack. Donald Trump is wrong that America should withdraw from the world and abandon our allies. Donald Trump is wrong that America should retreat from Europe”
Cruz can’t possibly believe his absurd implication that terrorists reacted immediately, attacking at the mere suggestion of reviewing NATO defense spending. But he believes he can fool the American people.
Cruz is desperate, dishonest and ambitious without principles. He has attached himself to the neocons and the military industrial complex like a suckling pig.
Today, in Colonial Williamsburg, I heard an anecdote about George Washington that I relate in the embedded video. It shows a stark contrast between the character of the founders of our country and the neocon politicians who are destroying it by keeping us in a state of perpetual war.
