Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio declined to directly attack Donald Trump over his attacks on Fox News host Megyn Kelly, telling "Meet the Press" that "we'll let him answer for what he says."
"I've made a decision here with Donald Trump," the Florida senator told NBC News' Chuck Todd for an interview to be broadcast on Sunday.
"If I comment on everything he says, I mean, my whole campaign will be consumed by it. That's all I'll do all day."
He praised Kelly, whom Trump slammed to CNN as a "lightweight" for what he said was "nasty" questioning during Thursday's GOP presidential debate, as a "very good" journalist and a "strong woman."
Rubio, however, did not call on Trump to apologize.
