Donald Trump spent much of the last six months mocking “Little Marco” Rubio and calling for him to resign over missed Senate votes. And now this:
Donald Trump on Thursday said that he would welcome Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) into his presidential cabinet. “Frankly, Marco I’d love to have involved,” the GOP presidential front-runner said on Fox News’s “Hannity.”
“I can tell you that Ben Carson is a terrific guy,” Trump said, listing other options from the original GOP contenders. “Chris Christie is a fantastic guy. Both of them are tremendous people.
“The party has to unite. If we unite, this party is going to have a huge victory. We are going to win places other people have no chance of winning.”
The comments from Trump come amid some new speculation about who could be the party’s vice presidential candidate. Trump has previously suggested he could consider Rubio, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker or Ohio Gov. John Kasich — who is still a presidential candidate — as his pick.
Ted Cruz has also floated Rubio has a running mate.
