WASHINGTON, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Sen. Marco Rubio's campaign is selling busted wrist watches to mock Donald Trump, who he said would be "selling watches in Manhattan" were it not for his inheritance.

The remark came during Thursday night's GOP presidential debate.

"If he hadn't inherited $200 million, do you know where Donald Trump would be?" Rubio said. "Selling watches in Manhattan."

Rubio later called Trump "a con artist."

Rubio's website lists a beat-up wrist watch called a "Trump Watch" next to the remarks with the caveat: "You won't actually get a broken Trump watch, but your $10 donation will help Marco stop him."

The watches appeared on the Rubio camp's website at the start of the debate, suggesting Rubio's remarks were prepared.

Similarly, shortly after Rubio said Hillary Clinton was "disqualified from being commander-in-chief," in a previous GOP debate, bumper stickers bearing the phrase became available on Rubio's website.
