“No, his rhetoric is a little louder, but if you think about where he was six months ago, his position on immigration six months ago was nothing like what he’s saying now, and even what he’s saying now borders on the absurd,” Rubio said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.

“He’s going to deport all these people, and then he’s going to allow back in the ones that are good. His plan makes no sense.”

Rubio also said the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s hearing featuring former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton proves that she lied about the motivation for the 2012 terrorist attack.

“People may think she had a good week, I think this is the week it was proven she lied about Benghazi,” he said.

The Republican presidential hopeful also said he is willing to support whoever wins the party’s nomination, but added that he’s “comfortable that it’s not going to be Donald Trump” and “increasingly confident that it’s going to be me.”
