Florida Senator Marco Rubio has recently announced his endorsement of former President Donald Trump for the upcoming 2024 presidential election, adding to the growing list of senators supporting the former president. Rubio’s endorsement comes just ahead of the Iowa caucuses, marking the first primary voting event of the year.
When Trump was in WH I achieved major policies I had worked on for years (like expanded Child Tax Credit & tough sanctions on regime in Cuba & Venezuela) because we had a President who didn’t cave to special interests or let bureaucrats block us.
I support Trump because that…
