Rubio urges for patience on Trump issues

via @learyreports

Sen. Marco Rubio on "Fox & Friends":

"I’m not saying the news articles are wrong. I’m not saying that they are right," he said. "I’m saying that they raise an allegation, we have an obligation to look into them, but before we form opinions and advocate for action, we need to know what the facts are."

Any advice for the White House? "There is a value to convention ... If the White House became more systematic in its approach to scheduling and messaging and the like, they would avoid some of the friction that you’re now seeing."
