GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was asked whether or not he thought President Obama was a Christian, but declined to answer that question, according to the Huffington Post.

“The president’s faith is between him and God. I’m not going to speculate on the president’s faith. What I will talk about is his policies. And his policies have been profoundly damaging to this country,” Cruz said. “His policies and this administration’s animosity to religious liberty and, in fact, antagonism to Christians has been one of the most troubling aspects of the Obama administration.”

Cruz’s comments come after the media criticized GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for not correcting a supporter at a town hall who claimed President Obama was a Muslim.
