Trump: Let’s Ask Israel About Walls That Work

Republican front-runner Donald Trump revved up a crowd in Atlanta on Sunday with more talk on his proposed border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“You could ask Israel about walls that work, believe me, walls work,” Trump told his supporters. “We would build such a nice wall. I want to make it nice because someday maybe they’re going to name it after me, right? I have to make it nice!”

Meanwhile, Sen. Marco Rubio has emerged from a razor-thin second-place finish in South Carolina’s presidential primary on Saturday, focused on narrowing the gap with Trump.

Rubio squeaked by rival and U.S. Senate colleague Ted Cruz in a vote on Saturday that cemented the appeal of firebrand outsider Trump, as well as the failure of a candidate representing one of America’s political dynasties, Jeb Bush, who suspended his campaign after a poor showing in South Carolina.

The remaining Republican candidates are now scrambling for voters in 12 states that hold March 1 nominating contests on so-called Super Tuesday, the next milestone on the road to the Nov. 8 presidential election.

Rubio, a first-term senator from Florida who himself has come under attack for lacking governing experience, told voters in Tennessee he is the candidate to solidify the Republican Party.

“In a race where you still have many choices, I’m asking you here in Tennessee to vote for me,” Rubio said. “If you vote for me I will unite this party. If you vote for me I will grow this party. If you vote for me we will win this election.”

Cruz, who had expected his appeal to conservative and evangelical voters to give him an edge in South Carolina, moved on to Nevada ahead of the state’s Tuesday Republican caucus.

An animated Cruz fired up supporters about his vision of what he thinks the U.S. should be.

“We got just over 48 hours to get the job done and I’m thrilled, I’m honored, I’m humbled to be standing with you today, standing with you today fighting to pull this country back from the brink, standing with you today to bring our nation back, together, we’re going to bring back that last, best hope for mankind, that shining city on a hill that is the United States of America,” Cruz said.

By winning both South Carolina and New Hampshire and currently holding leads in 13 states that hold Republican contests on March 1, Trump was arguably on track to win the nomination, an outcome that seemed improbable when he entered the race last summer.
