On Face the Nation this morning, CBS’ John Dickerson asked Senator Marco Rubio about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently saying that he would like a “little less drama from the White House.”
He asked Rubio, “Do you share that view?”
Rubio, who ran against Trump in the 2016 election and eventually supported him despite serious criticisms, said, “I don’t understand why people are that shocked. This president ran a very unconventional campaign.”
“That’s what the American people voted for, and in essence,” he added, “this White House is not much different from the campaign. People got what they voted for, they elected him.”
He acknowledged that the drama from Trump White House is “unique” and said it would be nice if they could avoid “unnecessary friction points” going forward.
