Sen. Ted Cruz made light of the recent news about his Canadian citizenship by joking to reporters Thursday that he is "secretly a citizen of Ethiopia."
The Texas Republican made the crack as members of the media were being escorted out of a meeting he was holding with business executives, the Houston Chronicle reported.
“I promise that while y’all are out I’ll try not to give any like really juicy piece of crazy news,” Cruz said, before adding, “I am secretly a citizen of Ethiopia.”
Cruz announced Monday he was renouncing his Canadian citizenship.
