Ted Cruz and fellow republican candidates need to talk more about the Saudi royal family because Americans don't merely want to hear about ISIS, they also want to hear more about countries such as Saudi Arabia that are said to have sponsored radical islamists. America has strong ties (a seventy-year alliance) with Saudi Arabia because of Saudi's prosperous oil industry, so this may prompt politicians from shying away from this topic. According to the Council on Foreign Affairs (CFR), Saudi Arabia has the world's largest reserves of crude oil. However, this is not an excuse for not being truthful to the American people.
Ted Cruz and the Republican presidential candidates should not talk more about the Saudi royal family because it is time not spent on discussing how they will handle more pressing issues to the American public. Voters are more concerned with issues like taxes, the minimum wage, climate change,and educational policies, so time spent on discussing the Saudi royal family takes away from understanding how the candidates feel about more important matters.
Ted Cruz and the republicans should stop focusing on a royal family oversees. During this campaign, they need to remain focused on what is happening here in the United States and what can be done for our country. By focusing on a family oversees, they give more importance to those oversees than those of us living in their own backyard.
No, Ted Cruz and the republicans do not need to talk more about the Saudi royal family. This is one small aspect of a very large job and a very long campaign. Sure, they could talk more about the family, as they could many other issues. It's really up to them what they feel is important. Those decisions alone inform the voters a great deal about the candidates' priorities.
