Trump: Elizabeth Warren 'Singlehandedly Destroyed' Bernie Sanders' Campaign
President notes attacks from Democrats on Sanders
President Donald Trump accused Elizabeth Warren of singlehandedly destroying socialist Bernie Sanders' second presidential campaign, claiming if she had dropped out of the race before Super Tuesday, Sanders would have swept the contests.
“Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas Warren singlehandedly destroyed the Bernie Sanders campaign by stripping voters way from his count on Super Tuesday,” Trump tweeted Monday morning.
“He lost states that he easily would have won if she had dropped out three days earlier.”
“The DNC is doing it to Bernie again! Will he ever get angry?”
Last week, Sanders accused the 'political establishment' of conspiring to "derail" his campaign.
The socialist Vermont senator claimed the establishment had chosen Joe Biden as their candidate.
"The political establishment has chosen their candidate. It's Joe Biden," he said in a campaign email.
"And they're lining up behind him in an effort to derail our momentum in this race."
Warren, who dropped out of the presidential race last week, has not yet endorsed either Joe Biden or Sanders.

Biden was boosted by endorsements from former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Buttigieg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn, Mike Bloomberg, and, most recently Kamala Harris and Corey Booker.
This helped Biden consolidate the moderate and center-left vote, while Sanders continued to split the support of progressives with Warren.
Warren suspending her campaign could give Sanders a boost before the next round of primary contests by making him the only progressive standard-bearer in the field.
"I will not be running for president in 2020, but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for hardworking folks across this country who've gotten the short end of the stick over and over," Warren said as she bowed out last week.
"One of the hardest parts of this is all those pinky promises, and all those little girls who are gonna have to wait four more years," Warren said.
"That's gonna be hard. ... I take those pinky promises seriously."
