There’s no doubt that Donald Trump has painted a big target on his back thanks to his bold, controversial promises, his aggressive smear campaigns against his competitors and his months-long first place position in the polls. However, Florida Senator Marco Rubio believes that he does not even have to address Trump going forward, as the real estate developer has no chance of winning the nomination regardless.

During the speech announcing his intent to run for president, Trump made a series of polarizing comments against Latinos. According to Rubio, who gave an interview to Fox News Latino, Trump believes that Hispanic voters will not punish the Republican party at large for Trump’s comments by voting Democrat in response, but he does believe that Trump should take responsibility for his divisive words.

Rubio claims that Trump is taking attention away from “very significant challenges” that the U.S. faces. “For example, we have hundreds of thousands of young American that owe thousands of dollars in student loans; we have a radical jihadist group that is beheading people and is trying to recruit Americans to join their cause,” he said.

“We have this terrible deal with Iran and nuclear weapons. We have millions of people in this country living paycheck to paycheck in an economy that is stagnated. These are the issues I hope we are going to start talking about. This is what our people deserve,” Rubio continued. The Florida senator has earned praise from pundits for his strong grasp on hot-button topics and his practiced speaking ability.

Although he currently sits in fourth place in the most recent polls, Rubio feels that he would fare well in the general election. “I have a message that I feel appeals to all Americans and that is that we live in a country where everyone should have the chance to go as far as their talents and their work would take them. That’s what has made America special, that’s the story of my family,” he said.
