On Friday, former President Donald Trump endorsed Republican Senator Marco Rubio in his reelection campaign for 2022.
In a statement, Trump said, “It is my honor to give U.S. Senator Marco Rubio my Complete and Total Endorsement. Marco has been a tireless advocate for the people of Florida, fighting to cut taxes, supporting our Second Amendment, our Military and our Vets, a strong national defense, and all of the forgotten men and women of America.”
Rubio’s responded to the endorsement in a statement, “I am grateful for President Trump’s endorsement and his leadership on the major issues facing our nation, including the threat from China and the need to bring good jobs back to America. Democrats are trying to undo everything we accomplished over the past four years, but I will continue to fight for the forgotten men and women of this country and deliver results for hardworking Florida families.”
Over the weekend, both Trump and Rubio are expected to make an appearance at the Republican National Committee’s donor retreat, which is held in Palm Beach, Florida.
According to The Hill, Rubio is seen as a contender to run for president again in 2024 along with Trump in the primary.
