Marco Rubio: 'Donald Trump obviously wasn't my first choice' but I'm 'more scared' about Hillary Clinton

Marco Rubio said Donald Trump puts him in a "quandry" but that he prefers him to Hillary Clinton.

"I'm even more scared about her being in control of the U.S. government,'' Rubio said on NBC's Today. "I think it's pretty clear that this is the position obviously I didn't want us to be in. Donald Trump obviously wasn't my first choice.

Rubio again said he stands by criticism of Trump but said he will support the GOP nominee. "I ran for president. I did the best I could, and it didn't work out. Republican voters have chosen a different direction. I have to respect that result even though it's not necessarily the one I wanted."
