GOP Candidate Makes Shocking Statement When Asked If He’d Support Trump in General Election

A day after urging Ohio and Florida voters to make stopping Donald Trump their reason for casting ballots, Sen. Marco Rubio indicated he’s distancing himself from the pledge he made to support the eventual GOP nominee., even if it should be Trump.

“I don’t know,” Rubio said Saturday. “I already talked about the fact that I think Hillary Clinton would be terrible for this country, but the fact that you’re even asking me that question … I still at this moment intend to support the Republican nominee, but … it’s getting harder every day.”


Rubio cited the protests Friday in Chicago, which shut down a planned Trump rally and became violent. He blamed Tump’s language for creating the political environment in which America is “careening toward chaos and anarchy.”

“We settle our differences in this country at the ballot box, not with guns or bayonets or violence,” Rubio said. “You wonder if we’re headed in a different direction today where we’re no longer capable of having differences of opinion but in fact now protests become a license to take up violence and take on your opponents physically.”

Although Rubio invoked the Chicago protests on Saturday, he had made it clear Friday that stopping Trump was his real campaign goal. (Read more from “GOP Candidate Makes Shocking Statement When Asked If He’d Support Trump in General Election” HERE)

    Screw Rubio, what he has to say means nothing to me, I want a person in office with guts enough to straighten it out, no more apologizing and bowing to kings for things we had to do, our president has never had to bow to anyone. We need TRUMP.

      How about the guy who has actually DONE the things you claim to want, instead of just talking about it when he wants your vote?
      While Cruz was actually fighting the left, Trump was funding them.
      CRUZ 2016!!!

        Cruz is an internationalist jerk who has angered his fellow internationalists by being a jerk. He’s still an internationalist. An ineffective internationalist might be less worse than an effective one, but I won’t vote for someone who is dedicated to destroying my country.
        Mike, if you have links to what you were saying about Mrs. Cruz not being a CFR member, and writing an opposition brief to NAU, post them here. I’ll read them.

          Here’s what Heidi Cruz actually wrote as a DISSENTING member of a temporary task force member.

          On pages 33-34 of CFR’s “Building a North American Community,” Heidi Cruz wrote a paragraph included under “Additional and DISSENTING Views” that contended economic investment must be led by the PRIVATE SECTOR RATHER THAN GOVERNMENT.

          “I support the Task Force report and its recommendations aimed at building a safer and more prosperous North America. Economic prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital, and producing results like financial markets and profit-making businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard for the poorest among us – truly the measure of our success. As such, investment funds and financing mechanisms should be deemed attractive instruments by those committing the capital and should only be developed in conjunction with market participants.”

          So the truth is that she OPPOSED the views of the CFR and was one of a handful of conservatives willing to fight them from the inside. Just like Ambassador John Bolton did. So does that make him a subversive closet socialist, too?

          Ted Cruz himself called the CFR “a pernicious nest of snakes” that is “working to undermine our sovereignty.”

          This stuff isn’t hard to learn, but you must remove your head from Trump’s backside first.

            He will when you remove your head from Cruz backside or do just enjoy life in the poop chute! You like to dish it out but there are no takers. It must be a bummer to be you. Cruz like you, both full of ……….use your imagination?

          • Nels

            So, you found the same thing I did. Her contribution seems to have been one of the additional views rather than a dissent, since she led off with “I support the Task Force report and its recommendations …” Her contribution boils down to wanting a bigger skim for her and Tundra Ted’s employer. She supports the central recommendation, to give up US sovereignty to a North American Union. Union with Mexico (or Tundra Ted’s homeland) would be a disaster for Americans.

    Foam Boy’s support is the last thing Trump needs. Foam Boy is a representative of the donor-class, internationalist billionaires. The fact that Foam Boy’s handlers don’t want Trump, and are telling Foam Boy not to support him, is a big plus for Trump.

  • Linda

      You are correct Rubio and you are both jerks! Kindergarten did wonders for you I see!
