Pres Trump Sarcastically Reacts As Cory Booker Drops Out Of The Race: “Now I Can Rest Easy Tonight”

On Monday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) dropped out the 2020 presidential race and announced his decision in a statement posted on Twitter.

In response, President Donald Trump sarcastically reacted on Twitter saying, “Now I can rest easy tonight.”

“Really Big Breaking News (Kidding): Booker, who was in zero polling territory, just dropped out of the Democrat Presidential Primary Race,” President Trump wrote.

“Now I can rest easy tonight. I was sooo concerned that I would someday have to go head to head with him!” he joked.

Senator Booker posted a video on Twitter to say: “Today I am suspending my campaign with the same spirit with which it began. It is my faith in us, my faith in us together as a nation. And we share common pain and common problems that can only be solved with a common purpose and common cause.”

“So now, I recommit myself to the work. I can’t wait to get back on the campaign trail and campaign as hard as I can for whoever is the eventual nominee, and for candidates up and down the ballot. But for now, I want to say thank you. … Together we will rise,” the New Jersey Senator said.
