WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement applauding Victoria Coates as Deputy National Security Advisor:
"It is no surprise to see Victoria rising in the ranks NSC leadership. She's brilliant, deeply insightful, and a ferocious advocate for American national security concerns. She is also a dear friend with impeccable judgment. It may seem unusual to have an art historian in this position, but her knowledge of culture, history, and human motivation makes her just what President Trump and NSA O'Brien need to assist them as they navigate the enormous challenges in the Middle East."
