After last night's Republican debate, where Rubio seemingly unloaded his oppo playbook on Trump, Trump decided he wasn't playing nice any longer.
He attacked the Florida senator on Twitter this morning, calling him a "lightweight," "Mr. Meltdown" and "a choker."
Why would the people of Florida vote for Marco Rubio when he defrauded them by agreeing to represent them as their Senator and then quit!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2016
Lightweight Marco Rubio was working hard last night. The problem is, he is a choker, and once a choker, always a chocker! Mr. Meltdown.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2016
Lying Ted Cruz and leightweight chocker Marco Rubio teamed up last night in a last ditch effort to stop our great movement. They failed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2016
On "Good Morning America" and in other appearances Friday morning, Rubio said Trump was a "con artist."
On Tuesday, in Sparks, Nevada, Trump called Rubio "a nice young man" but warned, "I can’t hit him, he has not hit me, when he hits me -- Ugh he’s gonna be hit."
