Ted Cruz Pens the Time Magazine Tribute to Trump

Right now it's easy to forget, but two years ago Sen. Ted
Cruz (R-TX) angered a convention center full of Donald

predicted Armageddon, President Trump’s strong stand

disrupt the status quo. That scares the heck out of those
who have controlled Washington for decades, but for
millions of Americans, their confusion is great fun to
