In an interview Monday with Fusion, a new TV network formed by a joint venture between ABC News and Univision, Cruz was asked if the president has been abusing his executive powers.
Host Jorge Ramos recounted a comparison Cruz’s father, Rafael, made between Obama and ex-Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Rafael Cruz emigrated from Cuba during the revolution.
Ramos asked Cruz if he agreed with his father’s statement, but the freshman senator didn’t answer the question directly, saying “look, obviously there are enormous differences between President Obama and Fidel Castro.”
