Trump Rallies For Former Rival Rubio, Takes Credit For Senator’s Late Surge

President Trump and Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio were 2016 presidential rivals, in a contest noted in part for Trump's occasional person attacks on Rubio, which resulted in the senator trying unsuccessful to launch similar, verbal counter-attacks.

  • Trump will headline an event for Rubio in Miami just days ahead of the midterm elections on Nov. 8.
  • In a post on his social media platform, Truth Social, called Rubio rival Democrat Rep. Val Demings a “weak-on-crime Radical Left Impeacher.”
  • Trump also lauded Rubio’s now double-digit lead, but also seem to at least take some credit for it.
  • “Wow, Senator Marco Rubio has taken an 11-point lead in his run … since we announced the Big Rally for him on the following Sunday (November 6th) in Miami. He deserves to win, and win BIG,” the former president wrote. “See you at the Rally!!!”
