Trump: Rubio not under consideration for VP pick

Washington (CNN) Donald Trump is making it clear he’s ruling out Marco Rubio as his running mate. The Florida senator is an oft-mentioned name as a vice-presidential choice for the presumptive GOP candidate. Supposition increased after The Washington Article reported Sunday on five names that Trump surrogate Ben Carson suggested were present.

    “The @washingtonpost file on prospective VP candidates is wrong. Marco Rubio as well as most others discussed are NOT under factor to consider,”Trump tweeted. Though Rubio is the only political figure stated by name, others pointed out in the Post tale include Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Ted Cruz, New Jacket Gov. Chris Christie and 2008 vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
