Trump: ‘DNC’s Fondest Wish’ Granted By Sanders’s Poor Primary Performance
Sen. Bernie Sanders’s, D-VT, poor performance in Tuesday’s primaries is the ‘DNC’s fondest wish,’ according to President Donald Trump.
The DNC will have gotten their fondest wish and defeated Bernie Sanders, far ahead of schedule. Now they are doing everything possible to be nice to him in order to keep his supporters. Bernie has given up, just like he did last time. He will be dropping out soon! MAGA/KAG

“The DNC will have gotten their fondest wish and defeated Bernie Sanders, far ahead of schedule,” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday, “Now they are doing everything possible to be nice to him in order to keep his supporters. Bernie has given up, just like he did last time. He will be dropping out soon! MAGA/KAG.”
Sanders hasn’t announced that he’s out of the race, however, he is looking to “assess” his campaign strategy.
“The next primary contest is three weeks away,” Sanders’s campaign manager Faiz Shakir said in a statement. “Sen. Sanders is going to be having conversations with his supporters to assess his campaign.”
“In the immediate term, however, he is focused on the government response to the coronavirus outbreak and ensuring that we take care of working people and the most vulnerable.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden came out on top in the third “Super Tuesday” race after winning Arizona, Illinois, and Florida.
He now has over 1,100 delegates and Sanders has 861. For the nomination, Biden will need to secure 1,991 delegates or 40 percent of total delegates at stake.
