According to the website of Newsweek on January 18, several newspapers in Texas called on the resignation of Senator Ted Cruz, who had challenged the results of the 2020 presidential election.
According to the report, the El Paso Times became the latest Texas newspaper to ask Cruz to resign from the Senate.
The newspaper published an editorial on Saturday (16th) saying that Cruz must be “responsible” for what he did before the Capitol riots, and its doubts about the election results led to the “uprising” in the Capitol.
According to the report, the Houston Chronicle and the San Antonio News Express also previously made a tough call for Cruz to leave the Senate.
In an editorial published on January 8, the Houston Chronicle called on Cruz to “free Texas from the shame of calling you a senator”.
Cruz should be “expelled” from the Senate and blame for his actions that undermine the presidential election results, San Antonio News Express wrote in an editorial on January 7.
According to the report, the Texas media is not the only one who condemn Cruz’s behavior.
Chad Sweet, the campaign director of Cruz’s 2016 presidential election, also called for “condemnation” of old friends’ opposition to the election results.
According to Russia Today’s 17th, Harvard students are petitioning for the revocation of Cruz’s degree obtained at the university, saying that his support for election fraud helped to create a “white supremacist riot” in Congress.
Due to repeated speculation on anti-China and other issues, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced sanctions against Cruz last year.
