US: Ted Cruz says Apple CEO Tim Cook has made a ‘personal decision’ to be gay
Texas senator Ted Cruz has reacted to Apple CEO Tim Cook’s announcement that he is gay by calling it a “personal decision.”
Speaking on CNBC on Thursday, Cruz was asked about Mr Cook’s piece in Bloomsberg Businessweek, where he said he is “proud to be gay.”
Cruz said: “Those are his personal choices. I’ll tell you, I love my iPhone.”
He then continued: “Listen, Tim Cook makes his personal decisions, and that is his life. My focus is on the constitutional question of who has the authority to make decisions.”
Cruz attempted to introduce a bill to ban recognition of same-sex marriage earlier this year, despite the striking down of the Defence of Marriage Act.
