Ever since Sanders won the first two primaries, he has been on a losing streak with losses at South Carolina, Super Tuesday, Florida, Arizona, etc. The losses have effected his campaign trail very severely in the last one month. On Wednesday, his campaign manager Faiz Shakir issued a statement that says - “Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will assess the situation of his bid to the White House after the collection of primary losses.”
He further added, “The next primary contest is at least three weeks away. Senator Sanders is going to be having conversations with supporters to assess his campaign and bring it back on track. However, as of now, he is constantly focused on the government response to the coronavirus pandemic and ensuring that we take care of working people and the most vulnerable citizens.” The announcement from Bernie’s campaign manager can be a signal of him considering to suspend the presidential campaign. The main reason could be the series of losses in nominating contests in Arizona, Florida, and Illinois to his friend and Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
As a part of his campaign, Sanders’s team launched digital fundraising ads on Facebook. However, all the ads have now been pulled down. Presently, Bernie doesn’t have any active ads up on his Facebook account as per the Advertising Analytics. Pulling down all active ads from his official Facebook account is also a reliable indicator of whether Sanders is considering quitting the campaign. President Trump taunted Bernie Sanders with a tweet from his official handle. Trump wrote - “Bernie has given up, just like he did last time. He will be dropping out soon! MAGA/KAG”
The DNC will have gotten their fondest wish and defeated Bernie Sanders, far ahead of schedule. Now they are doing everything possible to be nice to him in order to keep his supporters. Bernie has given up, just like he did last time. He will be dropping out soon! MAGA/KAG— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2020
