Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] blasted Barack Obama insisting that the president “thinks he is an emperor.”

In a press gaggle in Raleigh, North Carolina, Tuesday, Cruz also slammed Donald Trump suggesting, “Listen, no political candidate is going to make America great again.”

Cruz claimed, “It is not going to be Donald Trump, it is not going to be me. It’s not going to be any candidate. The only power strong enough to restore the nation is we the people.”

“It is not about us. It is about we the people,” Cruz suggested. “And so the idea that you would take this loyalty of, you know what, I raise my hand and I take an oath to you, to the people. That’s whose working for whom. And the idea that a candidate running for office wants the people to pledge loyalty to him like subjects to a king, well, we’ve had seven years of a president who thinks he is an emperor.”

“And I’ve got to say, the only hand-raising I’m interested in is on January 20, 2017, when I hope to raise my right hand and have my left hand sitting on the Bible when I make a promise, a pledge to every American to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Cruz insisted.
