Trump’s complete and total lie about Marco Rubio
Donald Trump said that he and Marco Rubio spoke and that he’d even consider him for VP. His relationship with Rubio, he claimed was warming up. This is an utter and complete lie.
Despite recent media reports characterizing Sen. Marco Rubio as “warming” to Donald Trump, sources close to the Florida Senator were adamant that he was not interested in being Trump’s running mate.
On Friday, Heat Street spoke to multiple senior advisers, members of Rubio’s inner circle who have been in direct contact with him.
“Absolutely false,” said one Rubio adviser. “He absolutely will not be Trump’s Vice President.”
…during an appearance with Bret Baier on Fox News on Thursday, Trump claimed that he had had several “really nice conversations” recently with Rubio and that Rubio had been “very supportive, very good” and “said very nice things.”
However, Trump’s claims of talking to Rubio were completely false, two sources close to Rubio confirmed to Heat Street, emphasizing that Rubio had not spoken to Trump recently and certainly had not expressed support.
In fact, as Rubio’s advisers pointed out, he’s been very busy this week, out of the country on an official Congressional visit to the Middle East. Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Select Committee on Intelligence, visited with officials in Qatar, Iraq, and Turkey, as well as American military servicemembers and Christian leaders.
