Ted Cruz in his tough re-election campaign and galvanize party faithful for down-ballot candidates.

That's a far cry from Trump's derision of Cruz as "Lyin' Ted" during the 2016 primaries, when the two traded unusually harsh words for each other.

Trump had also ridiculed Cruz's wife, Heidi, during the 2016 campaign and promoted a conspiracy theory that Cruz's father was connected to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

"I don't regret anything", said the president. "It all worked out, very nicely". The president's appearance on behalf of Cruz represents a once-unthinkable show of support for Trump's onetime rival for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and comes as Cruz faces a strong challenge from Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke.

"I just got out of bed and ran down here", Brewer, a freight logistics manager, told the Chronicle. Trump is once again blaming Democrats over the current state of immigration law, but today, he's drawn more attention from the media over his claim that "unknown Middle Easterners" are mixing in with the caravan.

During an impromptu press gaggle on the South Lawn, the president lavished praise on his former archenemy on the trail. Democrats, meanwhile, prepared to turn out in force for a day many have been looking forward to since November 9, 2016, with Cruz's Democratic opponent, Beto O'Rourke, carrying most of their hopes.

"I like him a lot". "I think that's the moment when the detente started and the moment when Ted and the president's relationship began to shift for the better". When I heard about him, I figured he must be something a little special. "I think Beto O'Rourke is highly overrated", Trump said.
