Former President Donald Trump endorsed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, calling him a "tireless advocate" for Floridians.

The former commander in chief announced his support for the Florida senator Friday, continuing a running list of endorsements ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

“Marco has been a tireless advocate for the people of Florida, fighting to cut taxes, supporting our Second Amendment, our Military and our Vets, a strong national defense, and all of the forgotten men and women of America. Marco worked with me to reform the VA and help our small businesses grow, and with his help, we achieved the lowest ever unemployment for women, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and almost all Americans,” Trump said. “Together, we worked closely with the Cuban and Venezuelan communities, and have made great progress.”

He noted the Russian collusion scandal and Rubio’s comments about it in the endorsement announcement.

“[Rubio] also ruled that ‘President Trump was in no way involved with Russia,’ as he presided over the Senate Intelligence Committee on the FAKE Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax. Marco will never let the great people of Florida, or our Country, down!” Trump added.

Rubio was one of the two remaining GOP presidential candidates standing between Trump and the White House nomination in 2016. During that time, the real estate mogul nicknamed the senator "Little Marco."

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, ended speculation on whether she would primary Rubio, who has become the former president's senator since he left the White House for Mar-a-Lago.
