Rubio Releases Super Tuesday Open Letter Calling Trump ‘Dangerous,’ Threat to the Country

Trump RubioMarco Rubio is taking one final swing at Donald Trump with an open letter literally titled “Donald Trump Is No Joke — He’s Dangerous.”

Rubio acknowledges that he’s had a lot of fun at Trump’s expense recently, but warns, “There is a much, much more important issue at hand here: Donald Trump is a serious threat to the future of our party, and our country.”

He runs through the (incredibly incomplete) list of alarming things Trump has done:

In just the last few days, Trump has refused to condemn white supremacism and the Ku Klux Klan, praised dictators Saddam Hussein and Moammar Qaddafi, and proposed infringing upon the First Amendment of our Constitution. That’s all after he made fun of disabled people, said China was too soft on dissidents, demeaned women, and insulted war heroes.

Rubio declares, “We cannot allow Donald Trump to hijack the conservative movement and the party of Reagan. We cannot allow this country to turn away from the conservative principles that make us great.”

He specifically says that Trump has been “tearing down” American ideas of free speech and the rule of law, and saying that someone like that must be stopped.
