Rubio: ‘I’m Going to Spend Zero Time’ on Trump’s Interpretation of the Constitution
STEPHANOPOULOS: "And we are joined now by the number two finisher in South Carolina, Senator Marco Rubio. Thanks for joining us this morning. And, Senator Rubio, we just heard —"
RUBIO: "Thank you."
STEPHANOPOULOS: "— Donald Trump say he’s not sure you’re eligible to run for president. Your response?"
RUBIO: "Well, this is — look, this is a pattern. This is a game he plays. He says something that’s edgy and outrageous and then the media flocks and covers that and then no one else can get any coverage on anything else. And that worked when there were 15 people running for president. It’s not going to work anymore. I’m going to spend zero time on his interpretation of the Constitution with regards to eligibility. And I’m going to spend all my time talking about what this campaign should be about. This country faces a very significant and important choice in 2016. And when it’s — it needs to be made in a serious way. The consequences are extraordinary, if we get this election wrong. And Republicans need to nominate someone who’s going to unify the party, who’s going to grow the party and who’s going to win this election. And that’s why I’m asking people to vote for me and to go on my website, marcorubio.com, and sign up and be a part of our effort."
