Saturday night, GOP front-runner Donald Trump gave a speech after winning Louisiana and Kentucky and losing Maine and Kansas to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
In the speech, he congratulated Cruz for his victories, joking he did so well in Maine because it is “very close to Canada.”
Trump then called for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to drop out of the race, saying “I think it’s probably time.”
“I want to congratulate Ted on Maine and on Kansas. and he should do well in Maine, because it’s very close to Canada, let’s face it,” Trump stated. “I mean I think Marco Rubio had a very, very bad night, and personally, I’d call for him to drop out of the race. I think it’s time now that he drop out of the race. I really think so. I think it’s probably time, you know. I don’t think tonight he can get up and rant and rave and, oh, he did great. he comes in third, he comes in fourth. Every time he comes in third or fourth, he says, you’ve got to be able to win. And he has not been able to win and I think it’s time that he drops out. I would love to be able to take on Ted one-on-one. that would be so much fun, because Ted can’t win New York, he can’t win New Jersey, he can’t win Pennsylvania, he can’t win California. I want Ted one-on-one, okay?”
