Ted Cruz reacts to DNC opening night, says Dems 'care more about the woke mob than … working men and women' – Fox News
“The Democrats today are the party of the rich,” Cruz said. “They’re the party of coastal elites. They’re the party of Manhattan and San Francisco… That’s who they’re trying to appeal to, is the radical left. When it comes to working men and women, when it comes to union members, when it comes to the Ohio steelworker, they were nowhere to be found.”
Cruz added that Democrats don’t have any message for organizations like Teamsters, even as Antifa mobs are burning police union halls.
“The Democrats have said, ‘We care more about the woke mob than we do about standing with cops, firefighters or working men and women,'” he said. “And to go tonight without saying a meaningful word about the riots, about the police officers being murdered, it’s an example of how the Democratic Party [is] getting more and more extreme.”
That extremism, Cruz posited, stems from their hatred for President Trump.
“That’s what they stand for – radical leftism and hating Trump,” he said. “I don’t think that’s a majority vision in America.”
Cruz warned that if the Democrats win in November, America is facing the prospect of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. “in ascension.”
“These are radicals and that’s where the Democratic Party is,” he said, “and I don’t think that’s where the American people are.”
