Rubio ‘Won’t Speak on Behalf’ of Trump at GOP Convention

(Washington Examiner) – Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has rescinded a May comment that he will support presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump attend the Republican convention in Cleveland, Ohio, next month.

“I may not be asked to speak, but if I am at a convention or any Republican gathering for that matter, what I would communicate is the things I believe in,” Rubio told Roll Call Monday. “I’ve never said I would stand and speak on behalf of someone else’s agenda. I would speak about the things I believe in, not somebody else’s platform or on behalf of anyone else for that matter.”

The former GOP presidential candidate clarified that while he has not been asked to make formal remarks at the convention, any participation would be in support of the party, not necessarily its choice for the nomination.
