As the United States Senator Bernie Sanders wind the New Hampshire primary on February 11, he hailed his victory saying it is the beginning of the 'end for Trump'. However, while Sanders is now becoming the frontrunner for Democrats, the Republican US President Donald Trump was reportedly relatively quiet about Sanders success. However, Trump has said in the past he would rather face Sanders in the presidential race for 2020 as 'Bernie has real followers'. 

While Trump did not tweet about Sanders, he targetted other Democratic candidates in the race for White House including Mike Bloomberg, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg. In the same Twitter spree, the US President retweeted a post by a man whose Twitter handle was 'Cancel Sam' which was Trump's photo with Bloomberg with a hashtag 'Bloomberg is a racist'. Trump had posted most posts which are in line with his views, similar to the one including Bloomberg.
