‘I’ve got to say, if we don’t, if we’re given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don’t deliver, I think there will be pitchforks and torches in the streets,’ the Texas Republican told Martha Raddatz on ABC’s ‘This Week.’ ‘And I think quite rightly,’ Cruz added.
Cruz said he believed that Trump’s electoral vote win, along with the Republicans holding onto the Senate, a challenge, and the House, a given, was a ‘mandate’ for conservative change.
‘This election was a mandate for change. It astonished everyone. It astonished the pundits, it astonished the pollsters and it was an overwhelming mandate,’ Cruz said. ‘It was over 300 electoral votes.’
Cruz pointed to Trump’s extraordinary wins in the formerly blue Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa and New Hampshire.
‘We have a mandate for change,’ he repeated. ‘And Republican have been given the opportunity, we’ve been given control of the White House, of every executive branch and both houses of Congress.’
‘We can’t blow it, we have got to deliver,’ he said.
