Trump says Buttigieg dropping out of Democratic race is plot to ‘take Sanders out of play’

Taking to Twitter on Sunday evening, Trump said the wheels have been set in motion for the establishment Democrats to stop Sanders’ nomination dead in its tracks.

Via RT…

Reacting to reports of Pete Buttigieg ending his presidential bid, US President Donald Trump said this is the “real beginning” of a ploy by the Democrats to get rid of their frontrunner, Bernie Sanders.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday evening, Trump said the wheels have been set in motion for the establishment Democrats to stop Sanders’ nomination dead in its tracks.

“Pete Buttigieg is OUT. All of his SuperTuesday votes will go to Sleepy Joe Biden. Great timing. This is the REAL beginning of the Dems taking Bernie out of play – NO NOMINATION, AGAIN!”

The former South Bend, Indiana mayor’s decision to end his bid was unexpected, coming just two days ahead of Super Tuesday, when Democrats in 14 states will cast their ballots for the party’s nominee.

While Buttigieg’s campaign lost some momentum after his stunning, though controversial, victory in Iowa (where he butted heads with Sanders), and his strong showing in New Hampshire (where he narrowly lost to Sanders), he managed to finish in the top four in the South Carolina primary on Saturday.

This is not the first time Trump has accused the Democratic Party of attempting to rob Sanders of his chance to challenge him in the 2020 presidential election, while comparing the current Democratic nomination saga to that of 2016, which was heavily skewed in Hillary Clinton’s favor.

Back then, Sanders, who was riding a wave of popular support, lost to Clinton, whose campaign worked with the Democratic National Committee to secure her nomination behind Sanders’ back.

Biden unsuccessfully ran for president in 1988 and 2008. Unless the DNC thinks that “the third time’s the charm,” this two-time loser should not be nominated. But he will be — by the undemocratic superdelegates. Why? The Democrats have given up on the presidential race (they know Biden can’t beat Trump), but they’ll give Biden the nomination to save their “down ballot” races. The real goal is to control the House, Senate, or both. Then they can impeach Trump, or, at least, tie him in knots for the next four years.

Why is it that all of your comments miss the truth by a country mile?
For the DNC elite could not care less who controls the House,
Senate or White House, so long as they keep the power and
wealth gained by ruling the DNC.

The most common bumper sticker on a Dem’s car these days is “A Democrat 2020”. Just saw another one yesterday. That’s a clear green light for another ‘fix’ by the DNC.

They could care less what policies the nominee proposes.

Goodness this proves Trump is taking orders from the Kremlin by trying to help their approved other candidate stay in the race. Putin doesn’t want to take any chances. Just wait for CNN et al to twig!

I would like to see Sanders win the nomination outright. He has a realistic Israel policy.

After listening to Bloomberg’s plan to take it to a brokered convention, the DNC plan is to take people’s choice away….not unlike the last election.

Democracy is absolute slavery for the 50% working-poor.
For without democracy, the 50% most educated and greedy
would have no excuse for why they hoard all land and wealth.

Well, give Donnie two points for seeing the obvious here.

But how intriguing, that the two dropouts can arbitrarily assign all their delegates to Biden. What sort of a democratic process is that?
