  • Donald Trump went on CNN and was asked repeatedly to denounce David Duke and the KKK, he wouldn’t do it saying he didn’t know who they were. 
  • Cruz and Rubio have turned up the attacks on Trump following his inability to denounce David Duke and the KKK.
  • Hillary Clinton has also shifted her focus to the general election by attacking Donald Trump.
  • Trump now blames his bad showing on CNN to a faulty earpiece. 

Presidential candidates from both parties turned their rhetorical fire against Republican front-runner Donald Trump Sunday, with his GOP rivals attempting to claw back into the race and Democratic favorite Hillary Clinton tuning up for a possible general election run.

Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz stepped up their personal and policy-based barrage against Trump Sunday, warning that the real estate mogul’s nomination would be catastrophic for the Republican Party in November and beyond.

We’re about to lose the conservative movement to someone who’s not a conservative and (lose) the party of Lincoln and Reagan to a con artist,” Rubio told “Fox News Sunday”.

Trump fired back, beginning his “Fox News Sunday” interview with an extended, uninterrupted attack on Rubio, calling him a political “lightweight” and “little,” adding that the first-term senator “couldn’t get elected dogcatcher.”

Meanwhile, Cruz warned the “Trump train” could become “unstoppable” if he rolls to big victories in this week’s Super Tuesday primaries. Cruz cast Trump as a carbon copy of Clinton and suggested that not even Trump “knows what he would do” as president.

“The only campaign that has beaten Donald Trump is mine,” said the Texas senator, arguing that 65 percent of GOP voters don’t support Trump. “The only way to beat Donald Trump is to stand behind our campaign on Super Tuesday.”

Cruz later became upset over continued questions by “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace about the integrity of his campaign, following allegations about so-called dirty tricks that resulted in the forced resignation of spokesman Rick Tyler. Cruz accused Wallace of using Trump’s opposition research to frame questions and ended the interview in silence.

Later Sunday, Rubio mocked Trump’s physical characteristics in addition to his policy positions, telling a heavily college-age crowd of around 3,000 at Roanoke College in Salem, Va. that Trump “has these small hands.”

“You know what they say about a man with small hands,” Rubio said as the crowd laughed. “You can’t trust them.”

Rubio also mocked Trump for his complexion, as he has before, accusing him of having a bad “spray tan.”

“Donald is not going to make America great,” said Rubio, again drawing cheers and laughter. “He’s going to make America orange!”

In the wake of Trump’s endorsement this week by retired Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, Cruz suggested on “Fox News Sunday” that a hate group supporting Trump was making recorded calls – known as “robo-calls” — telling potential voters not to pick a Cuban candidate. Cruz and Rubio are both of Cuban descent. 

In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union”, Trump was repeatedly asked about Duke’s support, finally saying, “Just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, OK? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. Did he endorse me, or what’s going on?”

During a campaign event in northern Virginia, Rubio said he “refused” to repudiate Duke — “a well known white supremacist racist” — despite being asked repeatedly.

“We cannot be a party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan,” Rubio said. “Not only is that wrong, it makes him unelectable.”

Trump reportedly knew Duke in 2000 and cited him, Pat Buchanan and Lenora Fulani when explaining why he stopped considering a presidential run under the Reform Party.

“The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani. This is not company I wish to keep,” Trump said, according to The New York Times.

Meanwhile, Democratic frontrunner Clinton, fresh off a convincing victory in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, all-but-ignored Bernie Sanders, her rival for the nomination, and turned her attention to the Republican field.

Starting her morning with stops at two Memphis churches, Clinton offered an implicit critique of Trump, asking worshippers to reject “the demagoguery, the prejudice, the paranoia.”

Asked by actor Tony Goldwyn, who later campaigned with Clinton in Nashville, about her thoughts on Duke’s support for Trump, Clinton described it, simply, as “pathetic.”

Remember Rubio says Hillary Clinton is disqualified to be a Commander in Chief, let’s watch it again here at Fox Business:

    Why would 2 Republican candidates join up with a Democratic Criminal that shouldn’t even be allowed to run and should be in prison just to degrade a Co-runner? Because they all know they haven’t a snowballs chance in hell on their own in winning this election against a man who might just have a chance of straightening up our corrupt government a bit a actually helping the people of this country out in actually having them heard for a change.
