As always President Trump isn’t staying idle.
President Trump has just released a statement announcing that he’s now endorsing Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
Trump’s endorsement of Senator Rubio officially silents the rumors that Ivanka Trump would be running to take Rubio’s Senate seat.
In Trump’s endorsement, he was quoted saying “It is my honor to give U.S. Senator Marco Rubio my Complete and Total Endorsement”.

Newsmax covered Trump’s endorsement of Rubio and released these details:
President Donald Trump, in an announcement made through the Save America PAC Friday, gave Sen. Marco Rubio his endorsement for the Florida Republican’s 2022 Senate bid for reelection.
“It is my honor to give U.S. Senator Marco Rubio my Complete and Total Endorsement,” Trump said in the statement provided to Newsmax Friday morning. “Marco has been a tireless advocate for the people of Florida, fighting to cut taxes, supporting our Second Amendment, our Military and our Vets, a strong national defense, and all of the forgotten men and women of America.”
He added that Rubio “worked with me to reform the VA and help our small businesses grow, and with his help, we achieved the lowest ever unemployment for women, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and almost all Americans. Together, we worked closely with the Cuban and Venezuelan communities, and have made great progress.”

Without Trump’s endorsement Rubio would without a doubt lose his seat in the upcoming.
The Washington Times chipped too:
President Donald Trump endorsed Florida’s Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, his onetime rival for the presidency, for reelection on Friday.
“It is my honor to give U.S. Senator Marco Rubio my complete and total endorsement,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “Marco has been a tireless advocate for the people of Florida, fighting to cut taxes, supporting our Second Amendment, our military and our vets, a strong national defense, and all of the forgotten men and women of America.”
Mr. Trump, who has resided in Palm Beach, Florida, since leaving the White House, also praised the senator’s efforts in helping “small businesses grow” and lower unemployment.
“Marco will never let the great people of Florida, or our country, down,” the former president said.
The endorsement comes as Mr. Rubio, who was first elected to the Senate in 2010, begins the process of seeking a third term in 2022.
The endorsement also ends any speculation that Mr. Trump’s oldest daughter, Ivanka, would mount a campaign for the seat. Ms. Trump, who recently moved to the Miami area, has denied her interest in running against the senator, but political gossip continued to abound.
Most of you probably remember when Rubio and Trump clashed on the debate stage but afterward, there must’ve been no hard feelings considering Rubio endorsed Trump when it was all said and done.
