Ted Cruz can't get his story straight! The presidential candidate continued to evade difficult questions about whether he'd support Trump as the Republican nominee during media appearances over the weekend.

On Meet The Press on Sunday, Cruz refused to give a straight answer as to whether he would support Trump as the Republican nominee.

Cruz said he would not "surrender to Donald Trump" and claimed that host Chuck Todd was "lobbying" for Trump when he asked the Senator if he would support Trump as the GOP nominee.

"You've spent this entire interview trying to eviscerate Donald Trump," Todd said. "If he's the nominee, I take it you can't support him anymore, can you?"

The first dodge from Cruz: "I believe if the Republican Party nominates Donald Trump we will lose to Hillary…"

Again Todd pressed: "Can you support him?"

"Chuck, I recognize that many in the media would love for me to surrender to Donald Trump," Cruz said.

Cruz then tried to shift the conversation, asking Todd how much money the networks made from Republican debates and slamming Trump for allegedly avoiding questions about his own policies.

Todd interjected, "Why can't you answer the question of whether you can support Donald Trump or not? You can't answer that question."

Cruz instead went on to blame the media for Trump's rise. Todd tried one more time to ask Cruz about his stance, and Cruz said was that he was going to beat Trump.

"Let the record show you have not taken a position on whether you can support Trump if he's the nominee. Fair enough?" Todd finally said.

Cruz shot back, "And let the record show that you tried very very hard to get me to commit to supporting Trump. The record will show that."
