Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) spoke to Megyn Kelly tonight in a wide-ranging interview about the Iran nuclear deal, Planned Parenthood and Donald Trump.

Cruz said that the Obama administration did nothing to free the four Americans who are being held in Iran. 

"It was one of the many shameful aspects of this catastrophic Iran deal," Cruz shared. 

He added that he hopes Congress steps up and stops this deal from going through. 

"If this deal goes through, the Obama administration will become the leading financier of terrorism against America in the world," Cruz said. "It is profoundly dangerous for U.S. national security interests."

The 2016 presidential candidate also discussed the shocking video that shows a top Planned Parenthood official casually discussing the shipment of aborted fetus body parts to research labs. 

"These tapings of Planned Parenthood selling body parts are grotesque," Cruz said. "It highlights the evil of what they're doing."

He said that a criminal investigation needs to be launched, because at least three federal laws are potentially being violated.  

Cruz stated that he intends "to get to the bottom of what appears to be barbaric practices being carried out by Planned Parenthood" and wants the group to be defunded.
