‘It’s a clown show’: Donald Trump blasts the Democratic race and takes aim at ‘Mini’ Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer saying ‘the real politicians ate them up and spat them out’

  • The president tweeted after billionaire Steyer decided to drop out of the battle
  • Trump told him to ‘go away and save whatever little money you have left’ 
  • He said Steyer and Bloomberg had been ‘laughed at & mocked’ by the party 
  • Joe Biden, long considered the Democrats’ frontrunner, finally won a state, as South Carolina was called for the former vice president the minute polls closed
  • Trump suggested Biden’s win essentially snuffed out any hope for Mike Bloomberg winning the Democratic primary 

Donald Trump labeled the Democratic race a ‘clown show’ in overnight tweets Saturday, taking aim at ‘mini’ Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer who he says were ‘ate up and spat out by real politicians’. 

The president tweeted after billionaire Steyer decided to drop out of the battle, following Joe Biden’s win in South Carolina. 

Trump told the businessman to ‘go away and save whatever little money you have left’. He said Steyer along with Bloomberg had been ‘laughed at & mocked’ by the party. 

He added: ‘I would find it hard to believe that failed presidential candidates Tom Steyer, or Mini Mike Bloombeg, would contribute to the Democrat Party, even against me, after the way they have been treated – laughed at & mocked. The real politicians ate them up and spit them out!’

Trump had earlier tweeted: ‘Tom Steyer who, other than Mini Mike Bloomberg, spent more dollars for NOTHING than any candidate in history, quit the race today proclaiming how thrilled he was to be a part of the the Democrat Clown Show. Go away Tom and save whatever little money you have left!’

He followed up the tweet with: ‘I would find it hard to believe that failed presidential candidates Tom Steyer, or Mini Mike Bloombeg, would contribute to the Democrat Party, even against me, after the way they have been treated – laughed at & mocked. The real politicians ate them up and spit them out!’

Joe Biden, long considered the Democrats’ frontrunner, finally won a state, as South Carolina was called for the former vice president the minute polls closed.

‘Just days ago the press and the pundits had declared this candidacy dead,’ Biden said. ‘Now, thanks to you – the heart of the Democratic Party – we haven’t just won. We won big, and we are very much alive.’

Biden used his speech at his Columbia, South Carolina headquarters Saturday night to knock around Bernie Sanders, who was trailing him by around 30 points with about three-quarters of the vote in.

‘If Democrats want a nominee who’s a Democrat, a life-long Democrat, a proud Democrat, an Obama-Biden Democrat, join us,’ he told his crowd. 

He said with a Biden nomination the Democrats could take the White House from President Trump, keep the House in Nancy Pelosi’s hands and grab the Senate from the Republicans. ‘We have the option to win it big or lose it big,’ he said of the November 2020 election.

‘Most Americans don’t want the promise of revolution. They want more than promises – they want results,’ he said. ‘False promises are deceptive. And talk of a revolution isn’t changing anyone’s life,’ Biden stated, knocking Sanders.

Biden also suggested in his speech that with this one win, he was starting to lock the Democratic nomination up.

‘The moment to choose the path forward for our party has arrived. Maybe sooner than anyone guessed or wanted. But it’s here,’ he told the crowd.

‘And the decisions Democrats make all across America in the next few days will determine what this party stands for, what we believe, and what we will get done,’ he added.

At Biden’s headquarters in Columbia, South Carolina supporters screamed when Biden was called the winner the minute polls closed, as MSNBC played on the jumbotron at University of South Carolina’s volleyball center.

Directly after, Jazzy Trinity, the band playing the event, started performing ‘I Gotta Feeling’ by the Black Eyes Peas.

Biden’s win was called with 0 per cent reporting because exit polls had signaled such good news for the former vice president. 

President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale responded to the news of Biden trouncing Sanders by saying, ‘Once again, President Trump is the clear winner because not one of these candidates has a chance at beating him in November.’

Joe Biden, long considered the Democrats’ frontrunner, finally won a state, as South Carolina was called for the former vice president the minute polls closed.

President Trump took it a step further, suggesting Biden’s win essentially snuffed out any hope for Mike Bloomberg winning the Democratic primary.

‘Sleepy Joe Biden’s victory in the South Carolina Democrat Primary should be the end of Mini Mike Bloomberg’s Joke of a campaign,’ the president tweeted. ‘After the worst debate performance in the history of presidential debates, Mini Mike now has Biden split up his very few voters, taking many away!’

In protest, Bloomberg’s campaign manager Kevin Sheekey sent out a statement that began, ‘Mike Bloomberg has not been on the ballot yet.’

Biden had been trying to recover from his fourth place finish in Iowa and his fifth place loss in New Hampshire, as the Real Clear Politics polling average has Bernie Sanders nationally more than 10 points ahead of the former vice president. 

Pete Buttigieg, the 38-year-old openly gay former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was in fourth place, followed by Elizabeth Warren in fifth and Amy Klobuchar in sixth.

Warren had memorable debate performances in both Nevada and South Carolina, going after billionaire candidate Bloomberg, who decided to skip the first four states, instead laying the groundwork for a ‘Super Tuesday’ delegate haul. 

‘Super Tuesday’ is this Tuesday and Democratic voters from 14 states will select their candidates of choice.
