America has finally woken up and will send Donald Trump packing
In November, the former cabinet minister Jonathan Aitken told me that his money is on Marco Rubio as the Republican candidate and next President of the United States of America and last night, in coming third, in the Iowa caucuses, this has indeed become a possibility.
Rubio polled 23.09%, just behind Donald Trump’s 24.31% and Ted Cruz’s 27.65%. He commented:
“For months, for months they told us we had no chance. For months they told us because we offer too much optimism in a time of anger, we had no chance. For months they told us because we didn’t have the right endorsements or the right political connections, we had no chance. They told me that we have no chance because my hair wasn’t grey enough and my boots were too high. They told me I needed to wait my turn, that I needed to wait in line. But tonight, tonight here in Iowa, the people of this great state have sent a very clear message. After seven years of Barack Obama, we are not waiting any longer to take our country back”.
“Hillary Clinton is disqualified from being the President of the United States. Because she stored classified and sensitive information on her e-mail server, because she thinks she’s above the law. Hillary Clinton can never be Commander-in-Chief. Because anyone who lies to the families of people who lost their lives in service of this country can never be Commander-in-Chief of the United States”.
Sense is finally returning to this contest. This looks likely to be a race where Trump will thankfully be sent packing and one where Marco Rubio could take on Hillary Clinton. Then, it’ll get interesting.
