Former President Donald Trump confirmed a shocking rumor that he plans to endorse Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) in his reelection bid.
Trump issued a statement saying, “It is my honor to give U.S. Senator Marco Rubio my Complete and Total Endorsement. Marco has been a tireless advocate for the people of Florida, fighting to cut taxes, supporting our Second Amendment, our Military and our Vets, a strong national defense, and all of the forgotten men and women of America.”
Rubio is a Senator who many Republicans have speculated could use a better replacement, but Trump seems to disagree.
Going forward with Trump’s endorsement, Rubio will likely cruise to reelection with little opposition. Those who were expecting a change may be disappointed, but ultimately endorsing Rubio may be the smart move in this current political climate.
Trump has bigger fish to fry when it comes to cleaning out the Republican Party. Rubio may have been responsible for the “Gang of Eight” disaster years ago, but he is far more effective than the likes of Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AL).
Trump finished his statement by saying, “Marco will never let the great people of Florida, or our Country, down!” No doubt, Senator Rubio will be extremely grateful to receive such a confident endorsement.
