Marco Rubio 'Deeply Concerned' About Possible Donald Trump Cuba Business

By INES DE LA CUETARA

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Donald Trump will have to “answer some questions” about a Newsweek story reporting that a Trump-owned company allegedly violated the United States' trade embargo with Cuba in the late 1990s.

“This is something they’re going to have to give a response to. I mean, it was a violation of American law, if that’s how it happened,” Rubio said on the ESPN/ABC “Capital Games” podcast.

The report says the Trump-owned company secretly conducted business on the island under Fidel Castro’s communist regime.

“I hope the Trump campaign is going to come forward and answer some questions about this, because if what the article says is true — and I’m not saying that it is, we don’t know with a hundred percent certainty — I’d be deeply concerned about it. I would,” he said.

3. He won't explain anything.

He will say something outrageous that his base loves, and that will be all over the news instead. That is how he plays the game.

4. This could be just enough to hand Florida to Hillary


It's a virtual tie there right now, the slightest hiccup on either side could be decisive. This will certainly make many Cuban-Americans think twice about supporting trump.

8. Trump's biz dealings w/Castro will kill him w/one of the most solid republican voting .....

BTW Trump's treatment of Alicia Machado and calling her "Miss Housekeeping"

9. Cheney violates Iraq trade embargo, Halliburton enriches Hussein:

" Dick Cheney Made Millions with Saddam Hussein
by Martin A. Lee Saturday, May. 24, 2008 at 1:12 AM

Here's a whopper of a story you may have missed amid the cacophony of campaign ads and stump speeches in the run- up to the elections.

During former defense secretary Richard Cheney's five-year tenure as chief executive of Halliburton, Inc., his oil services firm raked in big bucks from dubious commercial dealings with Iraq. Cheney left Halliburton with a $34 million retirement package last July when he became the GOP's vice-presidential candidate. "

10. Rubio is really in a tough position on this and it is telling that his first answer violation of law

The answer lets him move both ways. If it appears that Trump can either dispute this or somehow get Floridians to say it is not disqualifying, I would bet that this will be the last we hear on this from Rubio.

If, however, it is as strongly resourced as it appears and this plays as badly in Florida as one might suspect, Rubio will have a hard decision as to what hurts him more -- sticking with the nominee of his party or acting as though it is an act of principle to call him on this. It will be interesting as today's PPP polling (after the debate, but before this) showed Trump losing Florida and Rubio winning.

His opponent has the easy answer - Trump may have broken the law. For Rubio, the boycott has long been something that he has demonized on.

18. The Headline is a borderline lie, misleading at best

The only thing Rubio is "deeply concerned" about is the endangerment of the chances of his re-election to the Senate if he ignores the Trump-Cuba flare-up. I doubt he gives a rat's ass about any $68,000 transaction anywhere, whether it was Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Lower Slobbovia or the Duchy of Grand Fenwick.
