‘Now I Can Rest Easy Tonight’: Pres. Trump Jokingly Reacts To Cory Booker’s Campaign End

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) announced Monday the end to his 2020 presidential campaign in a statement posted to Twitter. In response, President Donald Trump jokingly wrote on Twitter that he can “Now…rest easy tonight.”

“Really Big Breaking News (Kidding): Booker, who was in zero polling territory, just dropped out of the Democrat Presidential Primary Race. Now I can rest easy tonight. I was sooo concerned that I would someday have to go head to head with him!”

“It’s with a full heart that I share this news—I’m suspending my campaign for president. To my team, supporters, and everyone who gave me a shot—thank you.” Booker wrote in his announcement, “I am so proud of what we built, and I feel nothing but faith in what we can accomplish together.”

Some of Booker’s campaign platforms included environmental justice, a $15 minimum wage, and a repeal of the Trump tax cuts.
