Trump had praise for Cruz, saying he has “great respect” for the Texas Senator standing up for him.
“I have great respect for the fact he had the courage to back me up and say what I am saying is right. All I am saying, all he is saying is that, we have to stop illegal immigration. It’s causing tremendous problems including crime and he came out the other day. Strongly.
However, Trump did not have any reverence when it came to Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio called Trumps remarks about illegal immigrants divisive and offensive.
“Marco Rubio is somebody who is extremely weak on immigration,” Trump said. “He only toughened has stance because his poll numbers were going down.”
“If he ever got elected you would have people flowing across the border,” Trump warned.
