Potential Republican vice presidential candidate Marco Rubio on Saturday blasted President Barack Obama, claiming he was the most “divisive” political figure in modern American history.
“They get frustrated,” he Rubio said at a Republican fundraising dinner in South Carolina. “They can’t win on their record. And so they have chosen to go down a different road, one that I think is destructive, counterproductive and very unfortunate.”
“For all the policy disagreements that we have with our president, it is hard to understate how much he inspired people across this country four years ago with his promises to unite American and lift it up,” Rubio continued. “The man who currently runs the White House today and is running for president is a very different person. We have not seen such a divisive figure in modern American history as we have over the last three years.”
