Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Wednesday told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" that there is a "terrible toxic brew being allowed to continue in city after city," following the unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the shooting of Jacob Blake.

"It's all terrible," Rubio said of the news that two people were shot in Kenosha on the third night following Blake's shooting by police officers, which has left him partially paralyzed.

"I think this should be a consensus in this country that burning things down, attacking courthouses, shooting at police officers, rioting, arson, vandalism, none of these are appropriate responses to whatever quarrel or complaint you might have about our society," Rubio added.

"You never want to see anybody shot and hurt that way. I think that we also need to wait to know all the facts about that incident and not jump to conclusions in one direction or another," he said later in the interview.

"It's just a terrible toxic brew being allowed to continue in city after city and it's a terrible tragedy, and I think we should all be united behind the idea that rioting and/or showing up with all these guns into the street to act as some sort of militia is just not acceptable behavior," Rubio said. "It's only going to lead to more violence and more suffering for more families."
