Ted Cruz doesn’t think Trump’s attacks on Hunter Biden will move 'a single voter' but did allow Joe's best debate line

SENATOR Ted Cruz has said he doesn’t think President Donald Trump’s attacks on Hunter Biden will move “a single voter” – but said it gave Joe Biden his best debate line. 

The Texas Republican told Axios on HBO in an interview that aired on Monday that he doesn’t believe the attacks on Hunter, just before Election Day, are helping the GOP. 

“One of Biden’s best points was when he said all these attacks back and forth about my family and [Trump’s] family, they don’t matter,” Cruz told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan after the final debate between Trump and Biden.

“What matters is your family. That may have been Biden’s best moment, actually.”

Cruz was asked whether attacks against Biden regarding Hunter’s laptop "scandal" – which came at the hands of Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani – were effective. 

“I don’t think it moves a single voter,” the senator said. 

Trump has been honing in on Hunter in the weeks and days leading up to Election Day. 

Two weeks ago, the New York Post reported of a “smoking gun email” Hunter received from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Ukrainian gas company Burisma's board.

Critics of Biden have often tried to attack and question the former VP’s relationship with Ukraine.

Hunter joined the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma in 2014, around the time Biden was helping conduct the Obama administration's foreign policy with Ukraine.

Trump and his supporters have alleged that Biden pushed for the firing of Ukraine's top prosecutor to protect his son and Burisma from any investigation.

Unproven accusations have also been made claiming that Hunter consulted with his father on China-related business dealings.

The Post received a copy of a hard drive of Hunter’s apparent laptop that was said to have been left at a repair shop in Delaware last year from Giuliani.

Biden has said the allegations are part of a smear against his campaign and family – and has said Giuliani was fed “Russian disinformation.”

But Direct of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe has disagreed, saying that emails are not part of a Russian disinformation scheme. 

Cruz told Axios that attacks on presidential candidates’ families he doesn’t “see as moving votes significantly.”

During the 2016 presidential election, when Cruz was also running for the Republican nomination, Trump targeted Cruz and his family.

Trump suggested Cruz’s dad was involved in the assassination of former President John F Kennedy, and attacked Cruz’s wife, Heidi, and shared a side-by-side photo of her and his wife, Melania Trump. 

Nearly 60million people have already voted in the presidential election with just one week left until Election Day.
