Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Texas Senator Ted Cruz apologises over trip to Mexico during weather crisis” – below is their description.
Imagine your state is under an emergency – with freezing temperatures cutting power and water supplies to millions of people.
Not the ideal time to jet off on a family holiday in Cancun, Mexico, if you’re the senator. Ted Cruz has now apologised for making that trip, having worked out it was “obviously a mistake”.

In This Story: Mexico
Mexico became an independent nation state after the successful Mexican War of Independence against Spain in 1821.
Mexico is a developing country, but has the world’s 15th-largest economy by nominal GDP and the 11th-largest by PPP, with the United States being its largest economic partner. Since 2006, a conflict between the government and drug trafficking syndicates has led to over 120,000 deaths.
Mexico receives a significant number of tourists every year; in 2018, it was the 6th most-visited country in the world, with 39 million international arrivals.
