Rubio: Trump ‘Wrong’ on Eminent Domain, Private Property Is an Important Right

Wednesday on the campaign trail, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) responded to his rival Donald Trump’s support for eminent domain.

Rubio said, “He’s wrong. I mean, I think he is addressing the Kelo decision, which in Florida when I was a state legislator we passed what has become model legislation for other states around the country. That I actually passed both a law and a Constitutional amendment that keeps developers like Donald Trump from using the power of eminent domain to take private property away from an owner and give it to another private owner. Which is what the Kelo decision said should be legal unless states barred it. So he is wrong about that. It is one of of the most important rights American have is private property.”
