Perhaps it’s time to put the bad blood aside. Senator Marco Rubio said he would support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump if he secures the party’s nomination.
“I’ve always said I’m going to support the Republican nominee,” former candidate Rubio said, speaking on WIOD radio’s Jimmy Cefalo show. “And that’s especially true now that it is apparent that Hillary Clinton is going to be the Democratic candidate.”
Trump’s victory in New York earlier this week seemed to send a clear message from Republican voters about their nominee choice. The GOP front-runner now has more delegates than rivals Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich combined.
“My differences with Donald Trump are well-documented,” Rubio said. “I’m not saying he’s going to be the nominee, we don’t know that yet – he’s certainly the leader in the delegate count.”
It seems Rubio may be changing his tune on Trump as he sees the upcoming battle against Democratic front-runner Clinton. “Hillary Clinton would be a disaster for America,” he said.

Rubio says he'll endorse Trump if he is the Nominee (not something he'd say if he had a deal with Cruz).https://t.co/FqWVFRsVxT

Rubio is warming up to Trump? Yeah no kidding. If you want to stay in the game, you'd better learn to deal with the team captain. Reality.
