Texas Senator Ted Cruz has faced backlash on the internet after it was confirmed that he went to Cancun with his family, avoiding a winter storm that left millions in the state without power.
The state was hit hard by a winter storm the likes of which have almost never been seen so far south. The power grid has suffered extensive damage, and the resulting power outages have led to at least 20 confirmed deaths, according to The Hill.
"The truth is that right now we're just trying to keep people alive and safe for the next two days, so that’s where all of our focus is," said Austin mayor Steve Adler, adding that he feels Texas Governor Greg Abbot owes a "better explanation" on how to prevent problems with the grid from happening in the future.
Adler himself, ironically, was caught out vacationing while telling Texans to stay home during the pandemic.
Abbot himself tweeted late on Wednesday the following:
"UPDATE: About 1,600,000 homes have had power restored today. Current power generation is restoring an additional 200,000 homes every hour."
Cruz had this to say about the criticism coming his way: "I got no defense. A blizzard strikes Texas & our state shuts down. Not good. Stay safe!"
