Texas Senator Ted Cruz apologises over trip to Mexico during weather crisis

Washington Correspondent

Imagine your state is under an emergency – with freezing temperatures cutting power and water supplies to millions of people.

Not the ideal time to jet off on a family holiday in Cancun, Mexico, if you’re the senator.

Ted Cruz has now apologised for making that trip, having worked out it was “obviously a mistake”.

The Republican is facing outrage not just for jetting off abroad, but also for apparently leaving the family poodle behind.
