On "Hannity" tonight, Ted Cruz reacted to President Obama's weak leadership and controversial comments the president made in an interview in The New York Review of Books.

"The far-left has always had a strong anti-American streak, and it's always had an antipathy for Christians," Cruz said.

He noted that Obama was four years ahead of him at Harvard Law School, asserting that Obama perfectly reflects the views that cast America as a negative force in the world.

"That is utter nonsense," Cruz said. "America has been an incredible force of good in this world. No nation in the history of the world has spilled more blood or treasure for freedom."

"And yet, the far-left - out of which Barack Obama arose - despises American leadership in the world."
