Cruz: Those who bolstered Trump "will bear that responsibility going forward"

Cruz appeared Thursday evening on the Houston-based “Michael Berry Show” and was asked whether he thought he was treated fairly in the GOP primary, with the host mentioning Fox News.

“Well listen, there’s time for recriminations and you know, everyone who was responsible for the rise of Donald Trump, they will bear that responsibility going forward,” Cruz responded.

“But there were more than a few players that played a disproportionate role in that rise,” he added. “I’m going to focus, instead of looking backwards, I’m going to focus on looking forwards.”

Cruz returned to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for the first time since dropping out of the GOP race but declined to endorse Trump, who is working to shore up support from establishment Republicans.
