Highlights from the 11th Republican presidential debate


“You can’t trust ‘em”.

Attacking Trump’s pledge to “make America great again”, Clinton said “America never stopped being great!”. They’re like this. And you know what they say about men with small hands.
Trump on the torture debate and what he’d do: “Can you imagine these people, these animals over in the Middle East that chop off heads, sitting around talking and seeing that we’re having a hard problem with waterboarding?”
After disparaging Trump, Romney urged OH voters to back Kasich and voters in Florida to support Rubio, which would result in a brokered convention.
It was telling evidence of the party’s conundrum when Rubio and Cruz, clearly lacking enthusiasm, signaled their willingness to vote for Trump after spending much of the debate leveling withering criticism at his “flexible” policy positions and personal ethics.
For Cruz and Rubio, the window to catch up with Trump in the delegate count is quickly closing.
And he also was matter of fact about providing campaign contributions to leading Democrats, including 10 checks to Hillary Clinton, reviled by many conservatives.
“Donald Trump’s big win on Super Tuesday has made it clear that he is the likely nominee of the Republican Party, and that has sent the Republican establishment into a panic”, Stephen Colbert explained to his Late Show audience Thursday night. John Kasich-who has won only 25 delegates so far-has begun angling for a contested convention in Cleveland while Ben Carson all but dropped out on Wednesday. “They don’t want to be with this guy, but the voters are choosing this; it’s like an arranged marriage, and unlike Trump’s other marriages, this one could last eight years”.
While Cruz and Rubio never missed a chance to attack Trump, Kasich never missed a chance not to.
“I think (the birther activities were) very different than calling Mexicans rapists, than saying that Muslims are not going to be allowed into the country as immigrants, that mocking a disabled reporter” or “going after women and saying ‘Oh, she asked tough questions because she was in her menstrual cycle”, Romney told Borger.
Trump said it was simply business.
Lauer frowned on those words – ‘that I can foresee’.
He said he would win the case but Rubio said he was trying to “con people into giving him their vote, just like he conned people into giving him their money”.
“If we nominate Donald, we’re going to spend the spring, the fall, and the summer with the Republican nominee facing a fraud trial”, he said. Rubio said he does not regret making the comment.
Taking a page from Gov. Charlie Baker’s book, Romney ruled out voting for Trump. “Let’s see who’s right”.
He also talked about “Lyin’ Ted” and said the “real con artist” was Rubio.
Mr Trump said the workers were for a short November-to-March season.
