WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump is keeping up his criticism on his closest Republican rivals in the hours before the first Super Tuesday polls close.

Trump, in Kentucky, said Tuesday that March Rubio was "a total lightweight" while Ted Cruz is "a basket case" and "a liar." However, he held his fire on Ben Carson, calling him a "nice guy" and he didn't provide any descriptions for John Kasich.

He said his dealing powers would force companies to keep jobs in America and coerce countries to release American prisoners.

The Louisville crowd cheered when Trump spotted a sign in the crowd and asked it to be fetched for him. He held up the sign - which read "Hispanics 4 Trump" - and waved it around, mouthing "thank you" toward the audience.
