The senator subsequently admitted that the trip was a “mistake” because he and his family flew from Texas to Cancun, Mexico on Wednesday during the worst winter storm in three decades.
The trip was also carried out by thousands of Texans without electricity and running water for the fourth consecutive day, after the temperature dropped to 0F (-18C) last weekend.
However, Cruz said in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday that the “media” is suffering from the “Trump withdrawal,” which is why the trip was controversial-not Because of time or his explanation. travel.
“They have been attacking Trump̵
The senator said in a preliminary statement on Thursday that he “is working hard to take care of my children” and last week, like millions of Texans in Texas, they had no electricity or running water for several days.
“Unfortunately, the resulting storm. This is not my intention,” he told broadcaster ABC13. “Say “yes” to my daughters to somehow reduce all Texans who have experienced real hardship.”
Then, he was interviewed by Sean Hannity in another interview, he planned to stay in Cancun until Sunday, and did not travel back and forth as suggested in his initial statement .
Cruz added on Thursday night: “When I went there, I almost immediately started thinking about it, because of the crisis in Texas, you need to be on the ground.”
On Monday, both Mr. Crooks and Mr. Hannity continued to complain that the “media” reported the trip to Cancun, not the scandal surrounding New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo. Andrew Cuomo has been criticized for allegedly covering up the number of deaths in nursing homes caused by Covid-19.
Cruz said: “The media won’t even report it.” Cruz was criticized by another Republican Congressman Michael McCaul on Sunday.
The Texas politician told CNN: “I know that Mr. Cruz said this was a mistake and he was responsible for it, but I think it was a big mistake. For me, I am trying to help me on the ground. People and voters, that is what we should do in times of crisis.”
