Ted Cruz's Original Travel Plans Revealed in New Report After Being Slammed for Cancun Trip

Ted Cruz is back in the United States after a quick trip to Cancun and after blaming his daughters on his trip.

The 50-year-old senator from Texas was slammed on Wednesday night (February 17) after a photo of him on a flight to Mexico was posted on Twitter.

Texas is in the middle of a giant crisis right now because of the winter storms, which have caused the power to go out across the state. Many people are dealing with floods, no heat, no water, and other issues.

Cruz claimed that he only traveled to Cancun to accompany his daughters on a trip with his friends and that he was planning on traveling back the next day.

Now, a new report has revealed what the senator’s original travel plans were.

NBC News claims a source with knowledge of the situation said that Cruz was initially booked to return home on Saturday.

The source also says that Cruz booked his return ticket to the U.S. on 6am on Thursday morning (February 18), just hours before the flight.

A screencap that is spreading around social media claims that Cruz was flying standby for a business class seat.
