During a campaign event in South Carolina, Politico reports, Donald Trump singled out Marco Rubio for criticism:

Donald Trump is a uniter, not a divider, he said on Wednesday.

He had just trashed Marco Rubio, whose stock has been rising following Jeb Bush’s less-than-stellar performance in last week’s debate and Scott Walker’s Monday withdrawal from the race.

He twice knocked the Florida senator’s spotty attendance record and called him a “lightweight” — a dig he’s also aimed at Rand Paul and Bobby Jindal — in pushing back against Rubio’s criticism that Trump has not delved into foreign policy specifics. (“You don’t want the enemy to hear what you’re doing,” Trump explained.)

Trump has been ramping up his attacks on Rubio in recent days. On Tuesday he tweeted, “Senator Marco ‘amnesty’ Rubio, who has worst voting record in Senate, just hit me on national security-but I said don’t go into Iraq. VISION.”
