However, that argument was a tough sell for numerous voters who backed his presidential bid, with a few saying his endorsement of Trump vindicated Cruz's sharpest critics-several of whom accused him of opportunism.

On Friday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz swallowed his pride and made his public declaration of support for Republican nominee Donald Trump.

In the Facebook post, he wrote that he chose to vote for Trump because he "promised to support the Republican nominee" and he "intend [s] to keep [his] word".

I believe it's precisely because the endorsement helps Trump that both the Washington Post and the NeverTrumpers are so unhappy with Cruz's decision. Cruz, for his part, pointed out that he had promised to support the Republican nominee, whomever that person happened to be, and thus he was fulfilling his vow.

Cruz tried to argue that this election is a binary choice, and that Hillary Clinton has simply proven herself unfit to be president.

"I'm asking you for new information", Beck said. When Trump, now the GOP nominee, went after Cruz's dad and wife, Cruz said, he "abrogated" a GOP unity pledge all the candidates signed past year.

Caleb Howe, the managing editor of Red State, a conservative-leaning publication that is a fount of "Never Trump" sentiment, branded Cruz's endorsement as "Tedmaggedon" in a post early Saturday. "I look forward to working with him for many years to come in order to make America great again", Trump said.

Beck ended his conservative radio program with an apology to his listeners for supporting Cruz, adding that he should have backed Marco Rubio instead.

"I should have said, 'You know who can win?"

Trump referenced an unsubstantiated supermarket tabloid claim that Cruz's father associated with John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald before JFK's 1963 shooting. "He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth", Cruz said of Trump in May, hours before ending his campaign.

During the heated primary battle, Mr Trump insulted Mr Cruz's wife, Heidi, for her physical appearance.

Polls have since suggested that Cruz's popularity was slipping nationally and back home in Texas, where he could face a primary challenger for re-election in 2018. Mr. Trump has so far ran his campaign without offering specifics and sidestepping most of the questions relating to his controversial policy proposals. Cruz also mentioned that for anyone invested in upholding the right to 'religious liberty, ' they should vote for Trump.
