WASHINGTON—With public opinion polls showing that former President Donald Trump increasing his apparent insurmountable lead over Gov. Ron DeSantis, Ambassador Nikki Haley, and the rest of the 2024 GOP presidential candidates, Senator Marco Rubio makes his case for how Americans were safer and better off under President Trump.

In an interview with The Floridian, Senator Rubio said that Trump was “ incumbent President” and that “in essence is the incumbent Republican president.”

Sen. Rubio also addressed Trump’s detractors, saying the obvious quiet part out loud for them.

“Even people that don’t like what Trump says have to admit that the country was safer, more respected, we didn’t have a mass migration crisis, our economy was better, all these things when Trump was in office,” said Rubio. “I think there are a lot of people that are like, no matter what we may feel about what he said about this or that, our lives were better and the country was safer.”

Rubio, who helped frame Trump’s Western Hemisphere policies, added that under the Biden administration's foreign policy, the “unity in the region” has splintered and that many countries have now “flipped” from being Democratic to now being controlled by Socialist or Leftist presidents and governments.

“We went from having a unity in the region that aligned with our views, including the Caribbean, to now a bunch of countries that have flipped, and a bunch of countries that want to be friendly to the United States that feel like this administration treats their friend bad, and their enemies good,” he said.

Rubio also said the "immediate threat" to America was those individuals who "tear down posters" and "chant stupid things," that could start killing people.

H also has not decided against endorsing in the 2024 Republican presidential primary election.
