Trump calls for Rubio to drop out of US Republican race

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump calls on rival Marco Rubio to drop out of US presidential race, saying he would look forward to going head-to-head with Texas Senator Ted Cruz for the party nomination.

"Marco Rubio had a very bad night and personally I'd call on him to drop out of the race," Trump says. "I think it's time. You’ve got to be able to win."

“I’d love to take on Ted one on one," he says, claiming that Cruz would not be able to win primary contests in large states like New York and California.

Trump lost two contests to Cruz Saturday, but won two others and predicts he will do well in Rubio's home state of Florida later this month.
