Rubio Tells Trump: If You Didn't Inherit Millions, You'd Be Selling Watches in Manhattan

"...fined for hiring workers illegally..."

Donald Trump was on the receiving end of several punches during the GOP presidential debate last night. Senator Marco Rubio took a swipe at The Donald when he said Trump was successful only because he inherited a large amount of wealth.

"Here's a guy that buys a house for $179,000. He sells it to a lobbyist who is probably here for $380,000, and then legislation is passed," Trump said. "You tell me what happened."

But Rubio came back to Trump and said "Here's a guy who inherited $200 million. If he hadn't inherited $200 million, you know where Donald Trump would be? He would be selling watches in Manhattan."

Shortly after Rubio made his remarks, his campaign website put up a donation page "selling" a Trump watch for $10. You won't get an actual watch, but it's still a clever marketing angle.

"If you're going to claim you're the only one that lifted this into the campaign, that you acknowledge, for example, that you're the only one who has been fined for hiring workers illegally," Rubio said.

"No, no, I'm the only one on the stage who has ever hired people. You haven't hired anyone," Trump fired back, as the audience applauded.
