Donald Trump Celebrates 2 Wins, Issues An Audacious Order To Rubio

After his wins in the primaries in Kentucky and Louisiana, Republican front-runner Donald Trump called on fellow candidate Marco Rubio to drop out.

This past Saturday, dubbed “Super Saturday,” Trump remained ahead of Rubio. He later announced that he’d rather wage a “one-on-one” war against fellow candidate Ted Cruz.

“I think it’s time now that [Rubio] drop out of the race. I think it’s time for Marco to clean the deck. I do. And I say that respectfully.”

Rubio’s campaign spokesman countered, calling Trump a “con artist” who is afraid that Rubio will gain traction in the race after winning the Florida primary.

Trump later appeared at Trump International in West Palm Beach and congratulated Cruz on his victories in the Maine and Kansas primaries.

“He should do well in Maine, because it’s very close to Canada,” he said. “Let’s face it.”

However, he added that he “really didn’t spend very much time” in Maine or Kansas. Further into his speech, he reprimanded the Republican Party as a whole. He said they should “come together and stop this foolishness,” referencing the fragmented nature of the party as many Republicans take up the fight against Trump themselves.

He warned that if anti-Trump Republicans were to mount a third party candidate, both groups would lose the presidency.

“It 100 percent guarantees the election of the Democrat,” he said.

Additionally, Trump made the misstep of announcing his win in Kentucky an hour before the result had actually been released. When informed about this, he simply left the room.

On the subject of Trump’s wins in the primaries on Saturday, Cruz said the results should serve as a wake-up call to the Republican Party because the fight for nomination is still ongoing.

“The scream you hear, the howl that comes from Washington, D.C., is utter terror at what we the people are doing together.”
