Cruz: I Forgave Trump’s Insults And Lies Because Jesus

The Christian Post reports:

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz explained that his Christian faith was instrumental for his ability to forgive President Donald Trump for the hurtful things he said and tweeted during the 2016 presidential election. Cruz, 49, spoke with ABC News’ Paula Faris for her “Journeys of Faith” podcast this week.

For example in March 2016, Trump tweeted a post comparing the looks of his own supermodel wife, Melania, and Cruz’s wife, Heidi, a managing director at Goldman Sachs. At the time, Cruz also accused the Trump campaign of organizing a National Enquirer story claiming Cruz had five mistresses.

“There is no doubt that forgiveness is critical to what it means to be a Christian,” Cruz told Faris. “I try to forgive, certainly. As God has forgiven us, we are commanded to do the same.”
