Cruz to CNBC: 'We'll Take Money From Anyone'

CNBC's "Squawk Box"

By    |   Friday, 15 Apr 2016 01:24 PM

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said during an interview Friday he's looking at all sources when it comes to funding his presidential campaign.

"Look, we'll take money from anyone. In fact, Andrew, I would love a check right now. It's $2,700, or you could go to TedCruz.org," a smiling Cruz told CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin on "Squawk Box."

Cruz's answer came after a question about whether he would accept donations from some of the people he's spoken out against on the campaign trail, what he's called "crony capitalism."

"The big banks have all gotten bigger. They're printing money," Cruz said. "The people who have been hammered are the little guys. It's the community banks, it's the small financial institutions. They're going out of business at a record pace. That's not accidental."

Cruz pointed to Dodd-Frank as the cause, and said, "My focus is on the little guys."

Cruz trails Donald Trump in the Republican race for president, with Trump holding a 743-545 advantage in delegate votes.

Improving the sluggish economy is a central issue of the current presidential campaign. Trump's critics say his campaign promises lack substance, but CNBC's Jim Cramer recently said the real estate mogul is smarter than people think.

"Trump has real things to say," Cramer said. "They may not be what you think, and they often seem like wishful thinking. But you need to know his views, not just how he is doing come around the far turn."
