Rubio: Trump Will Not Be The Republican Nominee

ORFORD, N.H. (AP) _ Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says Donald Trump will not be the Republican presidential nominee because his message is not an optimistic one.

He says the GOP nominee “is going to be someone who embraces the future,” and he is taking issue with Trump’s campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again.” Rubio’s parents came to the United States from Cuba and he uses his family story to show the power of the America dream.

Rubio says America is already a great country that can be made greater with forward-thinking policies on education and the economy.

Rubio has largely shied away from taking on Trump, even as rivals such as Jeb Bush and Rand Paul have become more forceful in criticizing the billionaire businessman who sits atop Republican polls.
