After his presidential candidature was crushed in 2016, and bore harsh jibes from Donald Trump, Sen. Marcos Rubio is trying now to show himself as both, Republican and Democrat.
Lisa Mascaro, journalist from AP (Associated Press), described him as if he were sitting on the fences.
According to Mascaro, he tries to find his place in the Republican Party.
The AP reveals that he also ignores journalists covering official events at the U.S. Capitol and only tackles proposed legislations and speeches before the Senate.
Every time he travel to his State, Florida, he only addresses minor issues.
It seems Marcos Rubio tries not to stand too close of the White House before the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
Contrary to what polls say, Rubio stated to AP: “I am not going to run against Trump in the upcoming primaries. No one else should do it unless they want to lose the White House.”
The Senator has developed permanent ties with Donald Trump via telephone calls.
However, he continues to maintain his political stance detached from the President while not officially ruling out the possibility of running for presidency.
The Washington Post uncovered the scandal triggered by Marcos Rubio with his parents when he said they were “victims of political persecution” in the Castro regime.
As a matter of fact, Marcos Rubio’s parents left Havana in 1956 as economic migrants.
Senator Rubio believes, among other things, in the need to “modernize” the agenda of the U.S. Republican Party for the 21st century.
Lisa Mascaro says that there are people who believe Rubio is only trying to survive his disappointing presidential campaign in 2016. And he is doing exactly what he usually does: finding the happy medium that pleases nobody.
But many converge on one point: Senator Marcos Rubio is still the biggest courtier in the U.S. Capitol.
