Trump confirmed last month that Cruz requested a meeting with him, though he declined to offer further details. The Texas senator was also not shy in singing the brash billionaire’s praises during a recent Fox News interview, during which Cruz said Trump is “taking on the Washington cartel.”

In an interview this week, Cruz offered perhaps his most glowing recommendation to date:

Quite a few members of this field have attacked Donald Trump. A lot of folks in the media have asked me, ‘Ted Cruz, will you do the same?’ I have been glad to praise Donald Trump for speaking out boldly and brashly and for focusing on illegal immigration.

As a result of such remarks, speculation has begun to grow that, as one social media commenter hypothesized, “Cruz is looking for a VP deal.”
