U.S. senator Ted Cruz of Texas says Tim Cook's "personal choice" to be gay doesn't change his love for his iPhone.
During an interview with CNBC, Cruz was asked about the Bloomberg Businessweek story in which Cook addressed his sexual orientation publicly for the first time.
"Those are his personal choices. I’ll tell you, I love my iPhone," Cruz said according to The Hill. He added, "Listen, Tim Cook makes his personal decisions, and that is his life. My focus is on the constitutional question of who has the authority to make decisions."
Cruz is the coauthor of the State Marriage Defense Act, which would bar the federal government from invalidating state laws on marriage. On Thursday, he said marriage has been a state matter "since the beginning of this country."
