The Republican presidential nominees also tweeted that it looks like the Vermont senator's supporters will “fight,” adding that if they don’t, “there [sic] blood, sweat and tears was [sic] a total waist [sic] of time.” He later deleted that tweet and posted corrected text.


Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, announced her selection on Friday night. She appeared with Kaine at a rally in Miami on Saturday.

The Virginia senator is widely viewed as a "safe" pick, but the choice garnered criticism from Sanders for not being progressive enough.

The Democratic Rules Committee on Saturday voted overwhelmingly to reduce the influence of superdelegates in the 2020 presidential election after a deal was reached between Clinton and Sanders supporters.

Reports also surfaced late Saturday that Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz would not speak this week at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

The development follows the leak of internal DNC emails that show an effort to undermine Sanders's presidential campaign.
