Thursday during Fox News Channel’s Republican presidential debate, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) declared he would turn the country around after seven years under President Barack Obama.
After acknowledging Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s absence, he emphasized the importance of uniting the GOP and turning the country around.
Rubio said, “Let’s be clear what this is about, it’s not about Donald Trump. He’s the greatest show on earth. But this campaign is for the greatest country in the world and a president who has systematically destroyed many of the things that made America special. You see, we usually elect presidents in America that want to change the things that are wrong in America. Barack Obama wants to change America. Barack Obama wants America to be more like the rest of the world. We don’t want to be like the rest of the world. We want to be the United States of America. That is why Hillary Clinton cannot win this election. Hillary Clinton this week said Barack Obama would make a great supreme court justice. The guy who systematically violates the Constitution on the supreme court? I don’t think so. If I’m the nominee, I will unite this party and we’ll defeat Hillary Clinton and turn this country around after seven years of the disaster that is Barack Obama.”
