On Wednesday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz predicted that if Trump were to become president, he would resign as the leader of the United States Senate.
Cruz, who has a history of making inflammatory comments about Muslims, Christians and other minority groups, was responding to a tweet by Trump, who said the United Nations would “have to go” if Trump is impeached.
Cruz was referencing a statement Trump made last month, where he claimed that the United Kingdom would be the next target of a “war on faith.”
He has said that Muslims are “living under Sharia law” in the United State and have to be protected.
“If Trump is elected, he’ll resign as president,” Cruz said Wednesday.
“It would be a war on faith.
We will have to go.”
Cruz’s tweet came days after Trump, in an interview with CBS News’ Charlie Rose, called the U.N. “obsolete” and a “totalitarian organization.”
Trump has said he would like to have a Muslim president, a remark that drew the ire of Muslims around the world, including Saudi Arabia, which has a large Muslim population.
“They have no respect for the United Nation.
I don’t think they respect it,” Trump said.”
We have a lot of respect for it, because it’s an organization.
And it’s not a banana republic, it’s a very civilized organization.”
During the interview, Rose also asked Trump if he believed the U and its member countries should be “tolerant” toward Muslim countries that are not friendly to the United United States.
“I believe that we should be tolerant,” Trump replied.
“But you don’t want to put your country in harm’s way,” Rose asked.
“No, I don`t,” Trump responded.
Rose then asked Trump about his stance on a possible U.S. military strike against North Korea.
Trump said that the U of A should be allowed to decide if North Korea was “providing military support” to ISIS.
“The U.K. has to have the right to decide, whether it`s a friendly or hostile country,” Trump added.
“Do they get to decide what`s friendly or not?
I don\’t think so,” Trump told Rose.”
There are countries that have the power, and I don”t think that we can get along with them,” he said.
In a separate interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Cruz, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said the country would have to “move beyond the idea that our Constitution guarantees us the right of religious freedom.”
“The United States will have a very difficult time with the Muslim world because of the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood,” Cruz told Tapper.
“The Brotherhood is a political organization.”
Cruz also warned that Trump would have “no credibility” as president if he became president and that he would “not be able to govern” the country.
“That’s what the Constitution is meant to do.
It gives the president the power of the purse, but it doesn’t give him the power to govern,” Cruz argued.
“If Trump became president, I think he would be in a very dangerous position because he would have no credibility in the eyes of the American people.”
