 But crusading Mr Cruz has insisted he will return the statue if he made it to the White House.

He added: “Rather than scolding our closest allies for even considering exercising their rights as a sovereign nation, the President of the United States should look for ways to make Brexit, if it happens, an opportunity to enhance and strengthen the special relationship between our two countries.”
The scathing comments came as US trade officials claimed that Britain was “not to small” to have a trade agreement with the US.Mr Cruz has previously blasted president Obama’s pro-EU intervention.He said last month: “President Obama, if anything his campaigning against [Britain leaving] will make it more likely that England will pull out of the EU.”
