Rubio Says ‘Irreversible’ Issues If Biden Reelected

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said this weekend that a second term for President Joe Biden could cause “irreversible” issues for the United States. The senator made the comment as he is reportedly being considered by former President Donald Trump as a potential running mate.

Rubio said that a second Biden erm could create significant harm to the country. He said that “Joe Biden is reelected president, the damage to this country, I believe, in some cases will be generational, and some of it will be irreversible.”

“That’s how high the stakes are. I cannot imagine another four years under Joe Biden as president,” he said.

During the interview, Rubio also called for a mass deportation effort similar to the one recently proposed by Trump.

Despite the speculation, Rubio says he has not spoken to Trump about the V.P. position. He said that he would do “whatever the campaign asks me to do.”

Trump has remained mum on the speculation over a potential vice presidential running mate. He has ruled out several people expressly, including former Vice President Mike Pence and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R).

Despite this, there have been several public figures reportedly being considered by the president. He invited a number of Republican dignitaries to his Mar-a-Lago estate earlier this year, possibly with the number two position in mind.

In addition to Rubio, Trump has met with North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum (R). Burgum spoke alongside Trump during a New Jersey rally earlier this month. Trump’s campaign said that the event attracted as many as 100,000 people.

In addition, Burgum joined Trump at the New York courthouse where he is currently facing a criminal trial.

Beyond Burgum and Rubio, Trump is also reportedly considering Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), who has positioned himself firmly with the ‘America First’ effort. Vance had previously been a sharp critic of the former president.

Former First Lady Melania Trump reportedly is recommending former Fox News host Tucker Carlson for the position.
