On February 2nd 2017, under the pressure of the bombing, North Korea concedes victory to the United States, South Korea and their allies. Thus, democracy is restored in the korean peninsula. The globalization due to the free trade agreement that Rubio signed with Latino America raises the peoples of Cuba and Venezuala against their dictators and made their path to democracy in 2017. It happens the same thing for some African countries. On May of the same year, Iran is about to obtain nuclear weapon. This country wants to use this weapons against Israel, Irak and Afghanistan, all allies of the US. So president Rubio orders CIA to send an underground mission to kill all the experts in nuclear. After all the targets are killed, Iran is deprived of nuclear material. So Iran rises the white flag. It's another victory for the US and their allies. On March 2018, when the Sudanese conflict opposing South Sudan to Sudan begins, many refugees left their country to find refuge in America. Rubio gives them the access to citizenship and the privilege to work in the US. The Sudanese conflict started by the willing of North Sudan to take control of the oil wells in the South.

So the Indian army comes to the ancient barracks and kill Saeed and all his accomplices. At the end of his first term, Rubio places an anti-missile shield maded by military boats that would shut down any missile involved in an eventual attack attempt against the US. To avoid a war to start in the Pacific Ocean as it happens for the Korean peninsula, Rubio reinforces the US Navy presence on this Ocean.
Rubio believes in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution that gives the right for every American to possess a gun. So, instead abolishing this amendment, the president builds police stations near from schools. This politic reduce the rate of criminality in the United States and the rate of shootings in the schools.
