In what could be another sign of Trump fatigue, the billionaire Manhattan developer drew major jeers while trying to poke fun at fellow presidential candidate Marco Rubio in front of conservative activists on Friday.
Donald Trump was met with boos from the conservative audience at the 2015 Values Voter Summit on Friday after he called Sen.
Trump pushed back against Rubio by questioning the Senator’s own foreign policy expertise. Now, it seems Senator Marco Rubio has become the latest target of one of Trump’s favorite insults: lightweight. He has referred to his involvement in the issue as a mistake, saying Congress should instead try to pass individual pieces to reform immigrations laws, starting with enforcement.
Indeed, even though Rubio was able to pass his and Obama’s immigration plan through the Senate, the bill went down in flames as a result of mass public opposition. (More ominously, he is now wasting resources in Iowa, where he has virtually no hope of victory.) That leaves a huge swath of mainstream and moderate GOP voters – wary of Bush and horrified at the prospect of Trump, Carson or Cruz as the nominee – for Rubio to gobble up.
Rubio talked of the pope’s praise for the United States, but he added, “I’m not supporting any ideas that don’t do anything to help our environment” but will hurt the economy. His longest comment on America’s Judeo-Christian tradition came when he indulged an issue familiar to Fox News viewers: shop owners replacing mentions of Christmas with unspecific “holiday” messages.
Rubio added that he thought Trump had been “exposed” in recent days and described him as “touchy” and “insecure”.
In a bold move, GOP candidate and Sen. “I mean, he’s got nothing…,” Trump said at an event in North Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday, CNN reported.
Trump’s support may be holding steady, but his once-commanding lead is closing, with physician Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina also making strong post-debate gains.
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is done holding punches. The man is simply too busy creating jobs all day to know what’s going in the Senate. “You have to be”, Trump said. “I don’t think so”.
Several 2016 presidential nomination polls were released this week and all show one thing in particular: Republican hopeful Donald Trump’s lead over his opponents has narrowed since the second debate. He was named by 25 percent, with Bush second at 11 percent, followed by Paul at 10 percent. In a quartet of polls over the past week, Kasich has drawn support from 2 percent in two and 4 percent in two.
