Trump tackles Marco Rubio over his repetitions during the GOP debate

Trump tackles Marco Rubio over his repetitions during the GOP debate


Top GOP presidential candidate and real estate magnate, Donald Trump joined the pile-on tackling Marco Rubio’s comments over his repetitions at the GOP debate. Trump claims Marco Rubio simply ‘was having a hard time.’

In an interview with “CBS This Morning” on Monday, Trump said: “He was having a hard time. It was sort of interesting to watch, because he made the one statement, and I’m one with a good memory.”

At that interview with co-hosts Charlie Rose, Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King on Monday, Trump claimed Rubio said, “Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing” one time and then a few minutes later, “the same statement, almost identical.”

He continued joking at the interview saying: “And I said all right, that’s OK, we’ve repeated ourselves on occasion, Charlie, right? And, other than Norah and Gayle, but Charlie and I repeat ourselves constantly, right? But, but, OK, so then I heard it again, and then I heard it a third time, a fourth time, and I think even a fifth time. And I said, wow, that’s really strange.”

Trump says Rubio made a mistake but kept at it all through the debate

Trump kept on with his attacks on Rubio. He said: “I mean, it was a little — I’m standing there and I’m saying, did I hear that five times now? I mean, you know, what’s going on here? And it was, you know, obviously a soundbite that he likes but you can use a soundbite once but you can’t use it five times. It doesn’t work.”

When asked if he has said things then later regret them, he replied that he doesn’t dwell in the past. He finished off saying: “I learn from the past and you know, we all make mistakes and certain things you would have done differently in life, I mean, all of us. Who wouldn’t have, if you had that option? But we never do have that option. So you have to learn from life, and if you do something, don’t do it again, that’s all.”
