Donald Trump's presidential campaign on Wednesday said the Republican nominee opposes the Obama administration's efforts to hand over federal control of an internet domain naming body to an worldwide nonprofit.
Trump's statement did not name Cruz, but Cruz has been a spearheading force behind the move to block Obama from proceeding on the change in US control. "President Obama intends to do so on his own authority - just 10 days from now, on October 1, unless Congress acts quickly to stop him".
Cruz: Ceding control of the internet risks handing reign to authoritarian regimes like Russian Federation and China who may threaten online freedom.
"The U.S. created, developed and expanded the Internet across the globe. Congress needs to act, or Internet freedom will be lost for good, since there will be no way to make it great again once it is lost".
But now Sen. Ted Cruz, who came closest in the GOP primary to gaining on Trump for the nomination, is indicating he may officially back his one-time rival, according to the Washington Examiner. That means that when ICANN escapes from government authority, ICANN escapes from having to worry about the First Amendment, having to worry about protecting your rights or my rights. Since 1998, the Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has partnered with ICANN, a California nonprofit, to keep things running.

Titans coach: Mariota will learn quickly from his turnovers
Meanwhile, Detroit opened their season with a 39-35 victory at Indianapolis, its seventh win in nine games dating to past year . Tennessee was also stout on the ground, containing Adrian Peterson and allowing a total of 65 rushing yards on the day.
Why the change? To finally remove all government control from global Internet governance.
Jonathan Zuck, president of ACT/The App Association, a trade group that includes Apple, Facebook, Alphabet and Microsoft, told a Senate panel that "China and Iran and Russian Federation are problems, have been and always have", but that has "nothing to do with this transition".
Cruz has been facing pressure back home in Texas to support Trump, and his stunt at the Republican convention-snagging a primetime speaking slot but conspicuously refusing to endorse Trump, to lusty boos from the delegates- may have made him susceptible to a potential primary challenger.
Mr. Trumps weighing in on this issue while Congress wrangles over final details of the continuing resolution is particularly important as it demonstrates the solidarity of Republicans against Obamas ill-conceived to surrender of the Internet. ICANN... supervises domain names on the Internet.
Donald Trump's campaign has announced their opposition to U.S. secession of internet controls through ICANN looming for October 1st.
"Hillary Clinton, in her tech policy platform, says she supports the transition as a 'critical step towards safeguarding the Internet's openness for future generations, '" Politico noted about the plan to give over control of the web to an worldwide consortium. "The actual flow of traffic, and therefore speech, is up to individual network and platform operators".
