Trump Calls Rubio ‘Puppet’ of Rich Donors

Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is becoming too dependent upon wealthy contributors like casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, according to Donald Trump.

“Adelson is looking to give big dollars to Rubio because he feels he can mold him into his perfect little puppet. I agree!” Trump tweeted Tuesday. The Hill reported that the New York businessman, during a campaign event in New Hampshire the previous day, referred to Rubio and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as “puppets.”

The real-estate tycoon, who is reportedly worth several billion dollars, is largely financing his own campaign. Many of his supporters like the fact that no one can “buy” the candidate by making large donations.

The tweet was not the first time that Trump has gone after Rubio. He recently called the 44-year-old senator a “kid” and criticized how he has handled his personal finances. Rubio replied by suggesting that his bombastic rival is “touchy and insecure,” adding: “From time to time we’ll respond, because it’s fun to watch him blow up even more.”

Trump continues to lead national polls of likely Republican primary voters. However, retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson has nearly pulled even with him. Rubio, Bush and others trail the two front-runners by wide margins.
