Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio vowed on Sunday to keep repeating rehearsed lines after he was criticized for robotically attacking President Barack Obama.
During Saturday night’s Republican Presidential Debate on ABC, Gov. Chris Christie had accused Rubio of repeatedly saying that Obama “knows exactly what he’s doing,”
“There it is,” Christie interrupted at one point. “There it is — the memorized 25-second speech. There it is, everybody.”
On Sunday, Rubio told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos that he would continue using the rehearsed lines.
“I would pay them to keep running that clip,” Rubio insisted. “Because that’s what I believe passionately. It’s one of the reasons that I’m not running for re-election in the Senate. I’m running for president.”
“But you’re getting pounded for repeating that speech,” Stephanopoulos pointed out.
“I hope they keep running it,” Rubio replied. “And I’m going to keep saying it because it’s true.”
“It’s what I believe and it’s what I’m going to continue to say,” the candidate added. “Because it’s one of the main reasons why I am running.”

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.

The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
"The separation between rich and poor from 2017 and 2018 was greater than it has ever been."
Federal data released Thursday showed U.S. income inequality in 2018 reached the highest level since the Census Bureau began measuring it five decades ago, a finding that comes less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump said "inequality is down."
