Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are joining forces to do “something very big over the next two weeks in Washington.”
On Thursday, Ted Cruz announced that Donald Trump would join him at the Capitol next month to protest lawmakers supporting the Iranian nuclear deal. “Glad @realdonaldtrump accepted my invitation to rally in DC to stop the catastrophic #IranDeal,” Cruz tweeted from his campaign account.
Trump made the announcement following a campaign rally in South Carolina Thursday, telling reporters that the event will be “essentially a protest against the totally incompetent deal that we’re making with Iran.”
“By the way, even if you break it up, they are going to get $150 billion,” he said. “You know what I’d do? I wouldn’t give them the money. I don’t care what the deal — I would not give them the money.”
Senator Cruz’s press secretary, Catherine Frazier, told The Blaze that “the event will be sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, Center for Security Policy, and the Zionist Organization of America.”
“We are thankful for all their hard work on this effort and will have more details on time, date, and location as they are finalized,” she added.
