Cruz Parts Company With Trump Over Muslim Registry
by

Virtually all of the GOP candidates vying for the White House have taken aim at Donald Trump. A notable exception has been Ted Cruz. Until today.

During an appearance in Iowa with Congressman Steve King, Cruz told reporters he disagreed with Trump’s proposal to create a registry for Muslims residing in this country. “I’m a big fan of Donald Trump’s but I’m not a fan of government registries of American citizens,” said Cruz, “The First Amendment protects religious liberty, I’ve spent several decades defending religious liberty.”

I’m with Cruz on this one. What is the use in forcing Ayaan Hirsi Ali to register with the federal government?

I wonder if Trump supporters will start calling Cruz a RINO. Now that would be a laugh. If Cruz isn’t a conservative then who is?

For his part, Trump now seems to be distancing himself from the idea claiming that an unnamed reporter brought it up. I suspect that Trump would prefer to avoid a debate with Cruz on matters of public policy because he would very likely come out on the short end of it.
