Even after the two men clashed bitterly during the GOP primaries, Donald Trump is considering Texas Sen. Ted Cruz as his choice for U.S. attorney general, Bloomberg reports, citing a source who’s familiar with the situation.
“Cruz, 45, was at Trump Tower in New York on Tuesday,” Bloomberg reports. “When approached by reporters on his way out, Cruz said the election was a mandate for change but didn’t say he was under consideration for a job.”
Trump repeatedly referred to Cruz as “Lyin’ Ted” during the presidential primaries.
“Cruz didn’t endorse Trump during a speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland,” Bloomberg notes, adding: “In September, relations between the two men seemed to improve when Cruz said he would vote for Trump.”
