President Donald Trump claimed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has "given up" just like in 2016 and will soon be dropping out of the race to be the Democrats' presidential nominee.
His comments came in a tweet Wednesday morning.
The president wrote: "The DNC (Democratic National Committee) 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 president's remarks were made after word that Sanders plans to talk with supporters to "assess his campaign." Sanders suffered bruising losses to former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday.
"The next primary contest is at least three weeks away. Sen. Sanders is going to be having conversations with supporters to assess his campaign," campaign manager Faiz Shakir said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Biden has made an appeal to Sanders' base of young supporters. He said the two candidates disagree on tactics, but share a common commitment to guaranteeing affordable healthcare, tackling climate change, and reducing income inequality.
