Ted Cruz denies reports about replacing Sessions as he praises him as "a friend and a strong conservative"

US Republican Senator Ted Cruz has denied rumors that he is on President Donald Trump’s list of possible replacements for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“Jeff Sessions is a friend and a strong conservative. I was proud to vote to confirm Jeff and to vigorously defend his confirmation, and I’m deeply gratified that we have a principled conservative like Jeff Sessions serving as Attorney General,” Cruz said in a statement on Monday night.
“The stories being reported in the media tonight are false. My focus is and will remain on fighting every day to defend 28 million Texans in the US Senate.”
The statement came shortly after The Washington Post claimed in a report that Cruz and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani were shortlisted for the job.
Giuliani, a Republican and a strong ally of the president, has also denied the report.
