Ted Cruz Joins ‘People’s Convoy’ of U.S Truckers, Rides Shotgun

Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz has joined the “People’s Convoy” of protesting U.S. truckers to show support for “standing up for freedom for every man, woman, and child in America!”

Sen. Cruz showed up Thursday to voice support and join in on the protest.

The “People’s Convoy,” an American extension of the Canadian “Freedom Convoy,” is protesting against overreaching government-imposed mandates and restrictions on public freedoms.

Cruz shared video and photos on social media showing him riding shotgun in a tractor-trailer and waving to fellow protesters.

He went on to thank those who showed up and commended them on “standing up” for freedom.

“Thank you to every trucker who is standing up for freedom for every man, woman, and child in America!” he wrote.

He thanked them once again in a later post, writing, “Thank you to The People’s Convoy for speaking out for freedom!

“Petty government tyrants shouldn’t force people to make private health care decisions.”

Members of the People’s Convoy met with Cruz and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) in the Capital on Tuesday to give voice to their protest against COVID-19 mandates and other issues surrounding the pandemic.

Representatives of the trucker convoy from across the country say they’re not leaving and will continue to loop the Beltway until lawmakers “hear our stories.”

Cruz previously torched the Biden administration for their “war on energy,” saying they would “rather fund terrorism” over American energy independence.

Cruz told Fox News on Tuesday that Democrat President Joe Biden and his administration have “created the energy crisis that we’re facing with their war on energy.”

“They could solve it themselves, and I have recently introduced legislation that would restore American energy independence,” Cruz said.

“Instead of taking those options, they want to purchase oil from places like Iran and Venezuela.”
