Ted Cruz Relates Shutdown to Hostage Taking

Ted Cruz probably confused the responsibilities. Thousands of people watched Trump taking the responsibility for the shutdown, not Schumer. The group if US citizens who hold Trump responsible for the shutdown is larger than the group who holds the Democrats responsible.

But I agree to Ted Cruz that the shutdown can be related to hostage taking. As Trump took the responsibility for the shutdown and as the Republicans supported him, Trump and the Republicans would have been the hostage takers in Ted Cruz’ view.
