Florida Senator Marco Rubio and NBC’s Kristen Welker were in several heated exchanges during Meet The Press this weekend. Welker asked Rubio about Donald Trump’s deportation plan, accepting election results, and more.

“Will you accept the election results in 2024 no matter what happens?” Welker asked Rubio.

“No matter what happens? No, if it’s an unfair election I think it’s going to be contested on either side,” Rubio responded.

“No matter who wins,” Welker corrected.

“No Democrat has refused to concede. Hillary Clinton conceded. Senator, will you accept the election results?” Welker pressed.

“Hillary Clinton said the election was stolen from her and that Trump was illegitimate. Kamala Harris agreed. We have Democrats now —” Rubio stated.

“She conceded the election. Senator, she conceded the election and attended the inauguration,” Welker jumped in.

“No, she said that Trump was illegitimate. She said that the election had been stolen, Kamala Harris agreed,” Rubio pushed back.

“By the way, there are Democrats serving in Congress today who in 2004 voted not to certify the Ohio electors because they said those machines had been tampered with and you have Democrats now saying they won’t certify 2024 because Trump is an insurrectionist and ineligible to hold office. So you need to ask them. Have you ever asked a Democrat this question on your show? I bet you, you’ve never asked a Democrat that question.”

Former Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton did in fact claim the election was stolen from her due to a Russian disinformation campaign.
