Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) blasted the Obama administration tonight following the news that the U.S. will normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba.

“This is yet another tragic mistake,” Cruz said. “It is the latest manifestation of the failures of the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy.”

Cruz said that our friends and allies no longer trust us, while our enemies no longer fear us. He charged Obama with showing weakness and appeasement toward our enemies.

Right when Cuba’s regime was struggling, Cruz said, “President Obama stepped in and threw an economic lifeline, and that presents a serious danger to our national security.”

The Texas senator discussed the administration’s decision to release three Cuban spies in exchange for Alan Gross, saying that it was reminiscent of the Bowe Bergdahl deal. Cruz said that those spies were responsible for the murder of four Americans.

“It’s dangerous and misguided," he said.

Cruz charged that Obama is angry at the American people for voting out Democrats and Harry Reid.

“He is reacting with unilateral defiance of the voters and the American people,” he said.

Cruz also weighed in on the 2016 presidential election, telling Sean Hannity,  “I believe the only way we win in 2016 is if we follow Reagan’s admonition, if we paint in bold colors and not pale pastels, that if we continue to run to the mushy middle, that the same voters who stayed home in 2008 and 2012 will stay home again and we will not win.”
