President Donald Trump mocked three Democrat presidential candidates on Tuesday night, two of whom are becoming increasingly irrelevant in the primary race.

“Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is having a really bad night. I think she is sending signals that she wants out,” Trump tweeted. “Calling for unity is her way of getting there, going home, and having a ‘nice cold beer’ with her husband!”

“Impeachment King Steyer (how did that work out?) spent 200 Million Dollars and got less than 1% of the vote in Iowa, and only 3% of the Vote in New Hampshire,” Trump continued. “Could it be that something is just plain missing? Not easy to do what I did, is it?”

Trump continued, “A very bad night for Mini Mike!”

Socialist Bernie Sanders “narrowly won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, consolidating support on the left and fending off a late charge by two moderate rivals to claim his second strong showing in two weeks and establish himself as a formidable contender for the Democratic nomination,” The New York Times reported. “Mr. Sanders had about 26 percent of the vote with 90 percent of the ballots counted, while former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., was a close second. Mr. Buttigieg split the centrist vote with Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who surged in New Hampshire to finish in third.”

During his victory speech, Sanders said, “The reason I believe we are going to win is that we have an unprecedented grassroots movement from coast to coast of millions of people. The reason that we are going to win is that we are putting together an unprecedented multi generational, multi racial political movement. This is a movement from coast to coast, which is demanding that we finally have an economy and a government that works for all of us, not wealthy campaign contributors.”

“I want to thank all of those people who have worked and contributed to our campaign, but make the point that in this point in the campaign we are taking on billionaires and we’re taking on candidates funded by billionaires,” Sanders continued. “But we are going to win because we have the agenda that speaks to the needs of working people throughout this country. Healthcare is a human right not a privilege. The wealthy and powerful will start paying their fair share of taxes. We will make public colleges and universities tuition free, and cancel all student debt.”

“We are going to end a racist and broken criminal justice system,” Sanders continued. “We are going to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Our gun safety policies will be determined by the American people, not the NRA. Under our administration it will be women, not the government, who control their own lives.”

Sanders concluded, “Now our campaign is not just about beating Trump. It is about transforming this country. It is about having the courage to take on Wall Street, the insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, the military industrial complex.”
