Rep. Pete King: Cruz Is 'a Fraud, He's a Liar, He's Self-Centered'

New York Rep. Pete King was livid Wednesday evening after Ted Cruz failed to endorse Donald Trump for president.

"Ted Cruz showed America what he really is. He's a fraud, he's a liar, he's self-centered, and he disqualified himself from ever being he considered for president of the United States," King told NBC from the floor at the Republican National Convention.

"He took a pledge to support the nominee. Today, this is a Ted Cruz that I've known, unfortunately. He cannot be trusted and he's not a true Republican, he's not a true conservative, he's totally self-centered.

"I never saw such outrage and anger on the floor as I saw toward Ted Cruz tonight, and he deserved every bit of it. He's a total fraud."

King added that he thinks Cruz "disgraced himself."

"He's more of a disgrace now than ever," King said. "He disgraced himself, he disgraced the party, and the party should never consider him again for office."

"We can live without Ted Cruz, and I think it's good that America saw what Ted Cruz is all about."

King has criticized Cruz several times in recent months, saying in April he would "take cyanide" if Cruz earned the party's presidential nomination.
