Ted Cruz Says As President He Would Leave an ‘Empty Seat’ at State of the Union — Here’s Why

Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said Friday that if he is elected president, he would leave an empty seat at the State of the Union address to represent “the over 50 million unborn children killed since Roe.”

The Texas senator made his comment in response to President Barack Obama announcing he would leave an empty seat at the State of the Union “to honor the victims of gun violence.”

“If I’m elected POTUS, there’ll be an empty seat for the over 50 million unborn children killed since Roe,” Cruz tweeted, using the “#Stand4Life” hashtag.

Obama is set to deliver his final State of the Union address on Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. ET.
