Rubio on Chaos at Cancelled Trump Rally: 'I'm Very Sad for Our Country'
Sen. Marco Rubio said on "The Kelly File" tonight that the protests and chaos at a cancelled Donald Trump rally make him "sad" for the country.
“I think it reflects very poorly on our country. I think it’s sad all the way around tonight," he said after Trump cancelled the Chicago event earlier in the night.
The announcement that the billionaire businessman would postpone the rally until another day led a large portion of the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion to break out into raucous cheers.
Some physical altercations were reported, as the protests spilled into the streets.
Rubio said that President Obama "has spent the last eight years dividing Americans" but said "no one is blameless" for the ugly scene in Chicago.
He criticized Trump for using "rough language" at his events and for the "general tone" of his campaign.
"You can't just say whatever you want. These words have real consequences," said Rubio.
Rubio said, however, that the protests appear to be an "orchestrated effort" and that some of the agitators are being paid.
