Ted Cruz on Trump Cabinet: "A Team Of All-Stars Coming Together"


Sen. Ted Cruz discusses the death of Fidel Castro and the future of Cuban-American relations on ABC's 'This Week.' He also discusses comments he made about President-elect Trump during the 2016 primary campaign.

"I'm not going to re-litigate the past," Cruz said about comments he made about Trump. "I’m going to focus on the future. I’m going to focus on what’s in front of us."

"It was a hard-fought campaign... on all sides and it was vigorous until the end. But at the end of the day, the people have spoken. He won the election. He won the nomination and he won the general election in convincing manner. And my focus is on the country. My focus is we have a new president. We have a mandate," Cruz said.

"What I’m going to work to do every day is to try to work closely with the new president, with the new administration and with my colleagues in Congress to deliver on what we promised. I've got to say, if we don’t, if we’re given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don’t deliver, I think there’ll be pitchforks and torches in the street, and I think quite rightly," he added.

"This election was a mandate for change and the most catastrophic thing Republicans could do is go back to business as usual," Cruz said.

About Trump's potential cabinet picks, Cruz said: "We’re seeing in the Trump administration... a team of all-stars that are coming together."
