Donnie Wahlberg joins Marco Rubio on U.S. presidential campaign trail

New Kids on the Block star Donnie Wahlberg has dealt Donald Trump a blow in his bid to become U.S. President – he has endorsed the property tycoon’s rival.
The singer-turned-actor has given Marco Rubio his support as the politician fights for the Republican party’s presidential vote.
According to Rubio’s campaign site, Wahlberg said, “Even though we do not see eye to eye on every issue, I know that Marco is a man of principle who can be trusted to keep us safe and give each and every one of us a shot at the American Dream.
“Marco is a humble man who has not forgotten his roots, and he will fight to make sure that where you come from does not determine how far you can go. We need a leader like Marco to inspire a new Republican party and unite our nation, and I am proud to support him for President.”
Wahlberg joined Rubio at a rally in Las Vegas over the weekend (20-21Feb16) and his timing could not have been better – following Jeb Bush’s decision to drop out the race for the White House on Saturday, only Rubio, Trump and Ted Cruz remain as the main Republican nomination contenders.
