“Wow! Crazy Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls, looking very good against his opponents in the Do Nothing Party. So what does this all mean? Stay tuned!” Trump tweeted.


The tweet came shortly after a Des Moines Register/CNN poll indicated the Vermont senator was in first place in Iowa a month out from the caucuses there, jumping ahead of his competitors after the respected poll showed him in third place in November.

The Trump campaign has stepped up attacks on Sanders in recent weeks, with the president attacking Sanders at an Ohio rally last week for his criticism of the strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad and the campaign calling him a “wealthy, fossil fuel-guzzling millionaire” who “lectures Americans on how to live their lives while doing the exact opposite.”

Sanders, meanwhile, responded to Trump’s tweet shortly after, tweeting “it means you’re going to lose.”
