Cruz: GOP should do "whatever it takes" to confirm Trump Supreme Court pick

“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.”
