Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said his opinions have not changed since he said he believed presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump could not be trusted with America’s nuclear launch codes.

“I stand by everything I said during the campaign,” Rubio said during a Weekly Standard  interview.

In February, Rubio called Trump an “erratic individual” during a CBS News interview.

Rubio said, “We’re about to turn over the conservative movement to a person who has no ideas of any substance on the important ideas—the nuclear codes of the United States, to an erratic individual.”

“I don’t have anything new to add from what I’ve already said. I’ve talked about it all week long,” Rubio told the Standard.

Earlier in the week, Rubio appeared on Florida’s WFTV and weighed in on Trump's comments about the heritage of Judge Gonzalo Curiel. Rubio said he had predicted this kind of controversy during the primary.

“I don’t defend what he says, and all I can tell you is I ran for president and I warned you this is what was going to happen,” he said.

Rubio said he would not speak on Trump’s behalf at the Republican convention. “I would speak about the things I believe in,” he said, according to Roll Call. 

The Florida senator told the Weekly Standard that his focus now is on funding to combat the Zika virus. He sent a letter to 33 lawmakers urging them to support $1.9 billion in funding to combat the virus, according to The Hill.
