In an interview that aired on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) seemingly dismissed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s charge that Trump’s opponent Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was a bigot.
The junior Florida U.S. Senator who is up for reelection in the fall noted that Democrats have a track record of calling Republican “bigots.”
“Democrats have been calling Republicans bigoted for a long time,” Rubio said. “I think Hillary Clinton has a lot of problems. I think she is corrupt. She is dishonest. Do I think some of the policies she stands for do harm minority communities? Absolutely.”
“You’ll have to ask some of the other campaigns about the terms they use,” he added. “I can tell you I don’t want Hillary Clinton to be our president.”
