Business Insider asked Trump about Rubio’s remarks on Thursday afternoon, and he dismissed the senator as “overrated”.

Therefore, he says, “If left with a choice between Russian Federation and nothing, they’re going to choose Russian Federation”. “He really never talks about issues and can’t have more than a ten-second soundbite on any key issue”, he said.
