Ted Cruz Challenges President Obama’s Syria Comments: “Say It To My Face!”
President Obama upset Ted Cruz when he called him scared of Syrian widows and children. Cruz is clapping back, and he wants the POTUS to stop talking trash from afar and run up.
Basically, Cruz feels like Obama can say all this stuff from Turkey, but he wouldn’t say it in person (he probably would though). “If you want to insult me, you can do it overseas, you can do it in Turkey, you can do it in foreign countries, but I would encourage you, mister president, come back and insult me to my face,” he said on Capitol Hill Wednesday.
Though he’s never actually been president and probably won’t be elected president, Cruz has determined that Obama’s comments are “utterly unbefitting of a president.”
The Syria debate is one that will likely keep being brought up in the presidential election.
More than 30 U.S. states refuse to welcome Syrian refugees following the Paris terrorist attacks.
