Speaking at Britain’s House of Lords, the Democrat said he thought Trump was more of a malleable candidate than Cruz, according to Politico.

"I think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you,” Carter was quoted as saying. "The reason is, Trump has proven already he’s completely malleable. I don’t think he has any fixed (positions) he’d go the White House and fight for. On the other hand, Ted Cruz is not malleable. He has far-right wing policies he’d pursue if he became president.”
