WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is picking up Monday where he left off, dogging Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump for not disavowing Sunday a white supremacist and the Ku Klux Klan.
Rubio says Trump’s decision not to denounce the public support of former KKK leader David Duke disqualifies him from the nomination from “the party of Lincoln.”
Trump has said he did not hear or understand the question Sunday on CNN when he was asked about Duke and the KKK. He did disavow Duke’s comments earlier.
Rubio shot back Monday that no matter how bad the earpiece, “‘Ku Klux Klan’ comes through pretty clearly.”
The audience responds to Rubio’s attacks with chants of “Dump Trump, dump Trump!”
Rubio trails Trump in polls of Republican voters in Tennessee.
