Donald Trump said in a radio interview on Sunday that Marco Rubio struggled during Saturday night's Republican presidential debate.

"Yeah he was right next to me, he was struggling, there's no question about it," Trump said on Boston Herald Radio when asked about a tense exchange between Rubio and Chris Christie. During the exchange, Rubio repeated the same line three times, prompting Christie to attack him for regurgitating talking points. Rubio then said the same line once again later in the debate.

Trump continued, "He struggled mightily. It's sort of like, I sort of don't want to talk about somebody else, because it's not fair."

"He was having a little hard time, there's no question about it," Trump said, chuckling.
