Trump thinks Democratic race is down to four candidates: 'Crazy' Bernie, 'Sleepy' Joe Biden, 'Reboot' Beto and Pete 'Boot-Edge-Edge'
President Donald Trump, on Tuesday, May 14, singled out four of his Democratic challengers from the list of 23 candidates and mocked former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Texas politician Beto O'Rourke and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, while predicting that one of them will win the nomination.
Trump, in a speech in Louisiana, said: "Boy, you got some beauties there! Three hundred and fifty million people and that's the best we can do?"
"It's going to be one of these people," the president said referring to the Democratic nomination for the 2020 elections. He did not mention the names of any of the women contenders in the Democratic field including heavyweights like Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Kamala Harris, even as a historic number of women are running for the 2020 presidency.
The Republican, during his rally, made fun of O'Rourke for losing a juggernaut momentum. He also jeered Sanders, calling him a lunatic and mocked Biden for his low-intensity campaign style. Trump ridiculed Buttigieg's name and added that the South Bend, Indiana mayor is too lightweight to warrant real criticism.
"I think we're going to win it big," he said, predicting his second term at the White House. "I'm looking at the competition. You sort of dream about competition like that, but who knows? I got 'Boot-edge-edge.' I got them all," the Daily Mail reported.
The president highlighted O'Rourke's apparent diving popularity and said: "What the hell happened? Remember about four weeks ago he said, 'I was made for this.' He was made for it! He was made to fall like a rock."
"Political geniuses, when you have to restart your campaign, history has said that that does not work out well, right?" he asked.
The 72-year-old, who described himself as a "young, vibrant man" last week, said that Biden, by comparison, has lost a step. "I don't know what the hell happened to Biden. What happened to him? I'm looking, I said, 'That doesn't look like the guy I knew!'"
He also mentioned the Vermont Senator, saying: "You know, Bernie's crazy! Bernie's crazy! But Bernie's got a lot more energy than Biden, so you never know. Bernie's got a lot of energy, but it's energy to get rid of your jobs. Not good energy. You don't like his energy."
