(INQUISITOR) President Obama’s Argentina visit involves taking in some of the country’s sights and addressing some recent issues. During a speech with Argentinian President Mauricio Macri, Obama slammed Ted Cruz for his remarks suggesting that the United States “patrol Muslim neighborhoods,” calling the proposal un-American and “contrary to our values.”
“I just left a country that engages in that kind of surveillance which, by the way, the father of Senator Cruz escaped, to America, the land of the free,” President Obama said during his Argentina visit today.
