WASHINGTON — Ted Cruz is attacking Donald Trump for promising to be “neutral” in brokering a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
The Texas senator seized on Trump’s past statement during his speech to pro-Israel activists on Monday. Trump, himself, did not address his past reference to neutrality as he took the stage just before Cruz.
Cruz noted Trump’s comments and said, “As president, I will not be neutral.” He added, “America will stand unapologetically with the nation of Israel.”
Cruz is chasing Trump in the Republican presidential primary.
