USA: "Once a choker, always a choker" - Trump calls Rubio "a choke artist"

United States, Millington
February 28, 2016 at 07:19 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thousands gathered at Millington regional airport in Tennessee, Saturday, as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump touched down in his private jet alongside New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, after Christie dropped out of the presidential race and officially endorsed Trump for the Republican nomination.

During the rally, Trump called fellow Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio a "choke artist" after he was confronted by Christie during a previous presidential debate and criticised for repeating the same talking point over and over again.

Commenting on the incident, Trump stated "I thought he was going down. I was standing there like this, I thought he was going to pass out, and it was a bad performance, he's a choke artist," adding "once a choker, always a choker."

Two anti-Trump protesters also managed to find their way into the rally, holding up signs reading, "Make America Hate Again" and "Love not hate," before scuffling with Trump supporters and eventually being thrown out.

Tennessee will be one of the thirteen states to hold primaries or caucuses on the same day next week on March 1, labelled "Super Tuesday" in the US.
