Not only is Ted Cruz a commitment to conservative values in the United States, but he also is a big-time backer of freedom for the North Korean people.
Cruz joined other Congressman Rep. Ed Royce and Rep. Chris Smith and these are the three “who have continuously lobbied for the freedom of the Korean people." They have been assisted by Suzanne Scholte, who is the chairman of the North Korea Freedom Coalition.
Americans may be unaware of this, but the North Korean people are very conscious of these efforts. Need proof? All three of these congressional Republicans received a stunning gift.
Per Conservative Tribune:
According to Scholte, in 2017 each received a mysterious small package from North Korea that contained a silk portrait of the representative or senator in question, as well as a heartfelt note of thanks.
“Instead of reactions to 8.15 messages, here are a few arts and craft items for the American politicians who delivered the messages,” the note reportedly read, referencing the National Liberation Day of Korea, an annual Aug. 15 holiday that celebrates Korea’s Independence from Japanese imperial rule.
“My (redacted for safety) and I spent three months making them late into the night. Please send them to the politicians. Please tell them that there are some people in a dark place who still have hope because of South Korea and the U.S.”
For whatever reason, these gifts to Cruz, Royce and Smith never made headline news.
