Pry apart the seam at the bottom where it is rusting-once you have it separated, sandblast or wirebrush it until there is no rust left, POR-15 it, then paint it.
That seam is notorious for trapping dirt, water, and everything else the weatherstripping keeps out. If you don't open it up a bit so you can completely eliminate the rust, it'll just keep coming back. Whenever I wash my truck I pressure wash the heck out of that area. Keeping it clean helps prevent the issue.
