Donald Trump turns his fire on Marco Rubio



As Marco Rubio rises in the polls, Donald Trump is increasingly turning his bombast toward the Florida Republican. Today in New York, Trump unloaded on Rubio's attendance record, stance on immigration and use of a GOP credit card. "He is a disaster," Trump said. "I've heard about it for years."

Rubio in keeping with an optimistic message has tried not to engage with rivals, though last month he called Trump "touchy and insecure."

Trump had been focused on Jeb Bush and saved some ire for him Tuesday. When a reporter asked Trump about his upcoming Saturday Night Live appearance and then requested a "Jeb impression," the businessman-entertainer-candidate replied: "I don't like showing a person sleeping at a podium."
