(FamilyRetirementClub.com) – President Donald Trump has congratulated socialist Senator Bernie Sanders for winning the Nevada caucus by a huge margin and warned him that the Democrats are trying to steal the nomination from him.
Sanders achieved more votes than the three candidates behind him; namely, Pete Buttigieg, Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren. The decisive victory is a sign that the Democratic Party seems perfectly willing to elect a socialist as its presidential candidate. However, with capitalist Michael Bloomberg spending hundreds of millions of dollars on his campaign, things could change as soon as he appears on the ballot papers in the Super Tuesday states.
In a tweet on Saturday night, President Trump commented, “Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates.”
“Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!”
The president really has a way of insulting and praising an enemy at the same time, doesn’t he?

The Sanders campaign will be over the moon about the victory in Nevada, not just because of their first-place victory, but because his support appears larger than competing progressive Elizabeth Warren as well as “moderates” Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden. Once Elizabeth Warren drops out of the race (let’s face it, it’s inevitable!), her progressive base may well shift to Sanders and give him the boost he needs to fight off an insurgent Michael Bloomberg.
During an acceptance speech he made in San Antonio, Texas, Sanders said he was “delighted.”
“I’m delighted to bring you some very good news,” he said. “I think all of you know we won the popular vote in Iowa. We won the New Hampshire primary…and, according to three networks and the AP, we have now won the Nevada caucus.”
As a majority of Americans say they won’t support a socialist in a presidential election, President Trump will be welcoming the news that Sanders is remaining the frontrunner in the Democratic race. While the president has previously claimed he would prefer to run against Michael Bloomberg because Bernie Sanders has a base of real supporters, a run against an avowed socialist is a dream for any Republican candidate.
