Trump to Bernie: Act more outraged when DNC screws you

MORE' (I-Vt.) presidential run.

In a couple of tweets on Saturday night, Trump claimed that the DNC was “working its magic in its quest to destroy Crazy Bernie Sanders for the more traditional, but not very bright, Sleepy Joe BidenJoe BidenFormer Rep. Rohrabacher says he took part in Jan. 6 march to Capitol but did not storm building Saudis picked up drugs in Cairo used to kill Khashoggi: report Biden looking to build momentum for Putin meeting MORE.” 

“Here we go again Bernie, but this time please show a little more anger and indignation when you get screwed!” he continued.

His remarks come as several polls have pointed to former Vice President Joe Biden holding a slight lead over Trump in a 2020 general election matchup in recent days. 

This is not the first time Trump accused the DNC of having worked to thwart Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) chances in the 2016 Democratic primary, however.

Trump previously accused the panel of “illegally” stealing the primary race “from Bernie Sanders. Bought and paid for by Crooked H” back in November 2017, following details that emerged at the time about the party’s institutional support for Clinton.


"This is real collusion and dishonesty," Trump added in a tweet then, "Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering - where is our Justice Department?" 

At the time, Trump had made the remarks in response to comments Donna Brazile, who served as the former interim chairwoman of the DNC, made about a deal she discovered between Clinton’s campaign, the DNC and the former secretary of state’s joint fundraising committee. 

Brazille said the 2015 deal said that Clinton’s campaign would “control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised." She said the deal had been made to help the party financially as it faced struggles with debt around the time.

Though Brazille said the deal “looked unethical,” she later said that she found “no evidence” that the 2016 primary process was rigged as a result of it and also took issue with critics who said otherwise.

“The only thing I found, which I said, I found the cancer, but I’m not killing the patient, was this memorandum that prevented the DNC from running its own operation," she said.
