Ted Cruz refuses to endorse Trump

1

CLEVELAND, Ohio: Vanquished presidential challenger Ted Cruz stunned the Republican National Convention on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) by thumbing his nose at Donald Trump, refusing to endorse the party’s 2016 nominee and urging Americans to “vote their conscience.” Cruz received a standing ovation as he took the stage, but cheers turned to boos when it became clear the US senator from Texas did not come to Cleveland to back his former rival. Trump himself sent the drama needle tipping into the red by striding into the arena shortly before Cruz finished speaking, calmly surveying the remarkable scene of delegates thrown into turmoil by the Texan’s remarks, and who hounded him off the stage.
