QUESTION: Cruz and Rubio Think Trump’s to Blame for Violent Protesters…Do You Agree?


Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio think the protesters that shut down Trump’s rally did so because of his ‘mean words’. Do you think they are right? Or do you think the behavior of the protestors was inexcusable?

Here’s what Cruz had to say:

Sen. Ted Cruz is responding to Donald Trump’s cancellation of his Chicago rally, saying the billionaire has created “an environment that encourages this sort of nasty discourse.”

Cruz spoke to reporters at a suburban Chicago Republican dinner about 30 miles away from where his GOP presidential rival was forced to cancel a rally due to safety concerns.

The Texas senator is calling it a “sad day.”

He says, “Political discourse should occur in this country without the threat of violence, without anger and rage and hatred directed at each other.”

Cruz says blame for the events in downtown Chicago rests with the protesters but “in any campaign responsibility starts at the top.”

Cruz says, “When the candidate urges supporters to engage in physical violence, to punch people in the face, the predictable consequence of that is that is escalates. Today is unlikely to be the last such incidence.” (Source: Breitbart)

Rubio also had similar comments:

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio phoned into the Fox News Channel Friday night to react tothe violence that broke out ahead of a Donald Trump Chicago rally.

The Florida senator, who said it was clear the protest was an “orchestrated” attempt to disrupt Trump’s rally, said the images were “very disturbing for a lot of reasons.”

“No one is blameless here,” Rubio said. “Perhaps I wouldn’t say Mr. Trump is responsible for the event tonight. But he most certainly has in other events used some pretty rough language, encouraging the crowd.” (Source: The Blaze)
