Trump mocks Cory Booker after he drops presidential bid

[ad_1]

President Trump took to Twitter to mock Cory Booker after he dropped out of the Democratic presidential primary race.

“Really Big Breaking News (Kidding): Booker, who was in zero polling territory, just dropped out of the Democrat Presidential Primary Race,” Trump said. “Now I can rest easy tonight. I was sooo concerned that I would someday have to go head to head with him!”

Booker, 50, announced his decision to drop out of the race on Monday in a video posted to social media. The New Jersey senator had struggled to gain traction in the contest, and most polls never registered him at more than 2% to 3% support.

“It’s with a full heart that I share this news—I’m suspending my campaign for president,” Booker said. “To my team, supporters, and everyone who gave me a shot—thank you. I am so proud of what we built, and I feel nothing but faith in what we can accomplish together.”

Near the end of September, Booker’s campaign manager Addisu Demissie warned that he was on the brink of dropping out because of low fundraising numbers.

A RealClearPolitics national average of polls on Monday had Booker at just 1.8% support.
