Rubio: The President’s a Christian, But That Debate Is ‘Irrelevant’

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio stated that while fellow GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump should have pushed back on a questioner who said President Obama is a Muslim, the president is a Christian, and his faith is irrelevant on Friday’s “Kelly File” on the Fox News Channel.

Rubio said Trump should have pushed back on the questioner, as he has in the past. He continued, “I think that’s irrelevant, and second of all, it’s not true. And the president has made very clear what his faith is…Christianity, if someone says they’re a Christian, and that’s what they are, we accept that. That’s what it is. And I don’t know why that keeps coming up. The truth is, my problems with the president are not personal. My problems with the president are his policy decisions. They’re dangerous for America on national security, and they’re bad for our economy, and for the individual lives of our people.”

Earlier, Rubio commented on Trump saying that he’ll have good advisers by stating that another candidate, Carly Fiorina showed, “if you take the time, you can learn a lot about these issues. But what’s important is that you need to be prepared to lead the very first day in office, to make judgment decisions based on facts and issues, and occurrences that you don’t control. Presidents cannot control foreign policy challenges. Oftentimes, they’re unexpected. They arise, and sometimes your adversaries take advantage of you, thinking that their might be someone in the office that’s unprepared.” And that whoever is elected “better be someone who’s prepared to deal with national security on their very first day in office.”

Rubio also stated that he will let the local authorities handle the controversy over whether his deputy campaign manager punched one of Rand Paul’s political directors, a controversy he doesn’t know a “tremendous lot about.”
