President Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and their families ate on Wednesday night, and signs indicate it is going great. The president even got the chance to meet Joe, the stuffed giraffe from the kindergarten class of Cruz’s daughter Catherine.
Has it truly been a year since the two sparred amid the GOP essential, with unkind monikers (“Lying Ted”) and their spouses got up to speed in the center? Has it truly been eight months since Cruz declined to support Trump at the Republican National Convention?
That is all in the past now.
Cruz is the second former primary rival Trump has met with this week. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., took to Twitter to declare that, in spite of everything, he had even given Trump his new phone number.
