Marco Rubio launches direct attack at Donald Trump

If until now Marco Rubio kept a moderate tone when attacking his competitors, the intensity of the race for the GOP nomination made him forget about it and address critics directly.

To be more specific, the Florida Senator claimed that Donald Trump is not strongly opposing the federal health care law and for suggesting that he could moderate in the Israeli Palestinian conflict, says The Washington Post.

Is Trump that well prepared when it comes to foreign policy?

“The front-runner in this race, Donald Trump, has said he’s not going to take sides on Israel versus the Palestinians because he wants to be an honest broker,” Rubio said. “Well, there is no such thing as an honest broker in that. Because the Palestinian Authority, which has strong links to terror, they teach little kids that it’s a glorious thing to kill Jews.”

Marco Rubio also added that Mr. Trump doesn’t care that much about details related to foreign policy, since, in the eventuality of a win, he will simply bring some of his best advisers on this topic. ‘Well, when I get there I’ll hire the smartest people and they’re going to tell me what to do,'” Rubio presumed Trump would say in such situation.

Not the most ethical campaign to date…

Finally, the Florida Senator also accused Donald Trump’s campaign of using “dirty tricks” in order to obtain votes, telling people from Vermont and Montana that they shouldn’t vote for a Cuban and opt for Donald Trump instead.

“This is the lowest form of campaigning, and is the exact same type of dirty tricks Donald Trump has been decrying for weeks now,” JoePounder, Marco Rubio‘s campaign spokesman, said.

“If I’m attacked, I’m going to respond and set the record straight,” the Senator finally added, justifying his reaction. We’re looking forward to seeing if the Republican front-runner will answer this.
