Before heading to Houston, Texas, on Monday for a rally in support of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) re-election campaign, President Donald Trump clarified his position on the onetime presidential hopeful.
“He’s not ‘Lyin’ Ted anymore. He’s beautiful Ted,” Trump told reporters on the White House’s South Lawn after ABC News’ Jonathan Karl asked him if “Ted Cruz is still Lyin’ Ted,” a nickname Trump gave the senator during the 2016 presidential primaries.

The president also said he doesn’t regret claiming the senator’s father was linked to the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
