Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] says Barack Obama has “sadly made his administration a laughingstock” of the world.

During Thursday’s CNN Republican debate, Cruz said that under Obama, “Our friends and allies quickly learned America could not be counted on.” (RELATED: Obama: ‘I Certainly Have Not Contributed To’ Dividing The Country [VIDEO])

Moderator Jake Tapper asked Cruz, “Does it matter to you what the rest of the world thinks of the United States?”

“Of course it does,” Cruz responded. “And we’ve seen for seven years a president that has made the presidency and has made sadly his administration a laughing stock in the world.”

“This administration started with President Obama sending back the bust of Winston Churchill to the United Kingdom within the opening weeks. Then he decided to go on a worldwide apology tour, apologizing for the United States of America,” Cruz said.

“I’ll tell you, when I travel abroad, when I meet with heads of states and defense ministers and foreign ministers, they say over and over again it is hard to be friends with America, we can’t count on America. America doesn’t stand with us. And that is a disgrace,” Cruz insisted.
