Trump Shreds Dems Disastrous Debate Performance: ‘Give Me an Opponent!’
'Crazy, chaotic Democrat Debate last night'
President Donald Trump weighed in on the Democratic presidential primary field following their “crazy, chaotic” debate in South Carolina on Tuesday, pleading, “just give me an opponent!”
“Crazy, chaotic Democrat Debate last night,” Trump tweeted.
The President was responding to the debate ahead of this Saturday’s primary in South Carolina and next week’s Super Tuesday contests.
Trump called out Biden's gaffe in which the former vice president claimed:
"150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.'"
“Fake News said Biden did well, even though he said half of our population was shot to death. Would be OVER for most. Mini Mike was weak and unsteady, but helped greatly by his many commercials (which are not supposed to be allowed during a debate),” he tweeted.
Trump then turned on Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren:
“Pocahontas was mean, & undisciplined, mostly aiming at Crazy Bernie and Mini Mike. They don’t know how to handle her, but I know she is a 'chocker.' Steyer was a disaster who, along with Mini, are setting records in $’s per vote,” he wrote.
“Just give me an opponent!”

Democrat Joe Biden blatantly lies as he falsely claims that *150 MILLION* Americans have been killed in shootings since 2007.— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) February 26, 2020

The growing anxiety among centrist Democrats is Sanders could be steamrolling his way to the nomination, a scenario which many moderates believe could spell doom for the Democratic Party up and down the ballot in November.
Bloomberg floated the theory that Russian leader Vladimir Putin is helping Bernie Sanders get elected so he can lose to President Donald Trump.
“Vladimir Putin thinks that Donald Trump should be president of the United States, and that’s why Russia is helping you get elected so you’ll lose to him,” Bloomberg told Sanders.
Sanders tied in Pete Buttigieg, followed with wins in New Hampshire's primary and Nevada's caucuses.
Though Biden is in the lead for South Carolina’s primary on Saturday, Sanders is catching up according to polls.
