Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke to reporters at Trump Tower, where president-elect Donald Trump and his top aides are outlining the future of his administration.
Cruz might be under consideration for Attorney General, according to Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs, but the Texas senator didn’t discuss any considerations for a position in the Trump administration.
Instead, Cruz commented on Trump’s historical victory.
“This election was a mandate for change,” he said, according to the White House transition press pool. “The American people rose up and spoke overwhelmingly to say that the path we’re on, it didn’t work. And they want change, and they have given Republicans a historic opportunity — putting a Republican in the White House, electing a Republican House and a Republican Senate.”
Cruz said he would lead the fight for a “conservative agenda” and the promises that Republicans made in the 2016 election.
