Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Hannity to discuss the post-election process. See below for highlights and watch the full interview here.
On the post-election process:
“At the core of our republic, legitimacy comes from people's confidence in the elections, and right now you've got half this country that has doubts about the veracity of this election… There's a process in the law that exists after the election, before the results are certified. That process has to be allowed to move forward. Otherwise, we are going to have a result here that half the country will harvest significant doubts about, and that's bad for the country.
“That's why both sides should be welcoming having this process be open, transparent, and according to the rights afforded to both candidates by the law.”
On the future of the Republican Party:
“I think the future of the Republican Party is a multi-ethnic, multi-racial working-class party, and what I mean by working-class party is normal, everyday people who don't want to live in a city where there is no police department, where people rampage through the streets every time they are upset about something, where their kids are afraid that they're going to fail a college course unless they agree with their crazy professor, where they are afraid to speak out on what they believe on some issue because they might get fired from their job or they are going to be called a racist because they wear a MAGA hat or have a sticker on their car.
“One thing we also forget as these are people who work hard and they don't want their small business to shut down. They take the pandemic seriously, but they have to make a living, and they are tired of seeing their job sent to another country and everyone telling them in both parties, that's just the way it works. It’s not working for them and they don't like crazy people, and a lot of the elements that control the Democratic Party today are crazy.
“I wouldn't say Joe Biden is crazy, but I will tell you that in his Administration, if there is one, there's going to be people in that cabinet that are out of their minds. The ‘defund the police’ people, the Green New Deal people, the people that want to do all kinds of things that undermine the vitality of this country's economy, the people who don't believe there should be any immigration laws. You talked about immigration — that issue is important in Hispanic communities, but it is offensive to presume that just because you are an immigrant and you live in an immigrant community that you think we shouldn't have immigration laws. And I think that’s the arrogance that comes from the far left that people rejected and voted for Donald Trump because of.”
