During his Super Tuesday speech, Republican candidate Ted Cruz took aim at Donald Trump, questioning the GOP front-runner’s conservatism. While doing so, Cruz contends that Trump was a supporter of Obama’s TARP Wall St. bailout.
“Donald Trump promises to cut deals with Democrats, and to continue the Washington cronyism, just like he supported Obama’s TARP Wall St. bailout.”
TARP stands for Troubled Asset Relief Program, and was indeed a Wall St. bailout that Donald Trump did in fact speak in support of. The only problem with Cruz’ assertion is that he called it “Obama’s TARP”. TAPR was actually signed into law on October 3, 2008, by President George W. Bush, more than one month before Obama had even won the presidential election.
