"There is no longer a Bernie Sanders 'political revolution.' He is turning out to be a weak and somewhat pathetic figure, wants it all to end!" Trump tweeted.

"Sorry folks, but Bernie Sanders is exhausted, just can't go on any longer. He is trying to dismiss the new e-mails and DNC disrespect. SAD!"

A trove of emails was released Friday by WikiLeaks that appear to show top officials at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) planning ways to undermine Sanders's presidential campaign.

Following the email leak, Sanders said Sunday that DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz should resign, adding he thinks the party needs a new chairman "that's going to lead us in a new direction." He said he wasn't shocked by the information in the email leak but was "disappointed" 

On the campaign trail, Trump often said the system was rigged against the Vermont senator. He has invited supporters of the Democratic candidate to support his campaign in the general election.
