Shortly after the Vermont senator announced the suspension of his campaign, Trump took to Twitter with a message blaming Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for Sanders’ loss on Super Tuesday.
At the time, the president took to Twitter to weigh in on the Democratic party’s presumed opinion of Sanders. He speculated that the Democratic primary was rigged. Now, he is blasting the party again, alluding to the same theory.
“Bernie Sanders is OUT!” Trump tweeted on Wednesday.
“Thank you to Elizabeth Warren. If not for her, Bernie would have won almost every state on Super Tuesday! This ended just like the Democrats [and] the DNC wanted, same as the Crooked Hillary fiasco.”
“The Bernie people should come to the Republican Party, TRADE!” he added.
Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale also released a statement where he declared that the president “will destroy” Biden in November.
“With Bernie Sanders suspending his campaign, it’s all but official that the Democrat establishment got the candidate they wanted in Joe Biden, as well as the candidate President Trump will destroy in November.”
The statement went on to discuss the current state of the country, saying, “President Trump is still disrupting Washington, DC, while Biden represents the old, tired way and continuing to coddle the communist regime in China.”
The Trump campaign also accused Democrats of disregarding Sanders and his supporters.
“Democrat elites shoved Bernie Sanders to the side for a second time, leaving many of his supporters looking for a new home,” the statement read.
Biden is the apparent Democratic nominee, as he hopes to take on President Donald Trump in the general election scheduled for November 6, 2020.
