    Donald Trump’s popularity is building.

    After a blowout in Iowa, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) officially endorsed Trump for president.

    “I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President. Now is the time for us to unite to oust Joe Biden and save our country from the Democrats’ destructive agenda,” Cruz wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

    “To help us win this fight, please make a donation right now to support me and President Trump as we work together to defeat Joe Biden & Save America. Make a strong statement with your support,” he said, alongside a link to donate to Trump’s campaign.

    Cruz narrowly won the 2016 Iowa caucus against Trump before eventually being defeated in the Republican primary.

    “[Iowa] was a dominating victory for Donald Trump: I’ve got to say, there’s no place like the Iowa caucuses. I know it intimately. The men and women of Iowa, they take their responsibility incredibly seriously. They scrutinize the candidates,” Cruz said.

    “It’s an amazing process, and I’m a big believer in letting democracy play out. Well, last night it played out, and I got to say Trump’s victory was across the board… Congratulations to President Trump on that dominating victory,” Cruz said. “And at this point, I believe this race is over.”

    “I’m a big believer we need to let the process play out: It did. And the results last night: 51% [of the vote, which included] 98 counties – that’s compelling. And at this point, I think the contrast needs to be on substance and policy and records [versus Biden],” Cruz said.

    Trump won 98 out of Iowa’s 99 counties.

    Trump also picked up an endorsement from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) another former 2016 primary competitor, on Sunday.

    The other U.S. senator in Texas, Republican Sen. John Cornyn, has said he will remain neutral in the nomination race
