“I think we should do whatever it takes to get him confirmed,” the former presidential candidate said on Fox News’ “Hannity” Tuesday night.
Cruz also praised Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for the position he has taken as Democrats threaten to block a Trump nominee.
“He’s encouraged all of us to go out and simply say we will confirm President Trump’s nominees; the Democrats will not succeed in filibustering those nominees. I think thats fabulous, I agree with him,” Cruz said.
When pressed about whether Republicans would employ the nuclear option this week, McConnell simply said: “The nominee will be confirmed.”
