Ted Cruz Says It’s a 'Disaster' for Republicans if Trump Becomes Nominee

The Republican candidate for president appeared on "This Week."

The Texas senator said the answer to beating Trump isn't a brokered convention, but instead to "beat him at the ballot box."

"We’re seeing Republicans uniting behind our campaign because we are the only candidate that is in position to beat Donald Trump, to earn 1,237 delegates and become the Republican nomination— nominee," Cruz said.

"I like and respect both of them, but neither one of them have any possibility of beating Donald Trump. It’s mathematically impossible," Cruz said. "I would say if you’re thinking of supporting one of them, we would welcome you to our team. If you don’t want to see Donald Trump as the nominee, if you don’t want to see Hillary Clinton as the president, then come join us."
