Rumors have been circling for days over whether Donald Trump will ask Sen. Marco Rubio, whom he once dubbed "Little Marco," to be his running mate in the 2016 general election. Well, on Facebook Monday, Rubio made very clear how he felt about being Trump's right hand man.

That clears things up. How many other potential VP picks will release their own refusals to serve next to the bombastic soon-to-be GOP nominee? Another of Trump's former presidential opponents, Gov. John Kasich, is reportedly on Trump's shortlist, yet the Ohio governor condemned Trump's policies and rhetoric throughout the campaign.
Luckily for Trump, he still has plenty of potential VP choices from which to choose. He is rumored to be vetting New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who on Monday enthusiastically said she'd accept a vice presidential invitation.
