Marco Rubio ends his presidential campaign on Tuesday night. He announced his suspension after being heavily defeated to Donald Trump by a huge margin of votes in the Florida primary.
After the results were announced, the Florida senator immediately rushed at the podium to address the tearful crowd, with his wife and four children by his side.
‘And so, while it is not God’s plan that I be president in 2016 or maybe ever, and while today my campaign is suspended, the fact that I’ve ever come this far is evidence of how special America truly is,’ the dejected Sunshine state senator told the lively yet bumped crowd. Many of the Rubio supporters expressed their anger by yelling at him saying that he should not give up the GOP presidential nomination until the convention.
He further added in his heartfelt speech, “America is in the middle of a real political storm, a real tsunami. And we should have seen this coming.”
The 44-year-old, son of a bartender and a maid, characterised his journey to the white House as an upbeat campaign and pleaded the citizens of United States to not give into fear and do not give into the frustration.
Marco Rubio’s destiny was decided by the voters as soon as the Florida primary polls closed at 8 p.m.
Rubio’s campaign team members have suggested that the politician will be a part of the ‘Stop Trump Movement’. The Florida lawmaker will be channelizing his efforts to block the billionaire’s path to the White House.
After a big win in the Sunshine state, Donald Trump congratulated Marco during his victory speech but later went to twitter twisting the knife by posting an old video of the dropout predicting the winner of the Florida primary would win the presidential campaign.
