Presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand has officially ended her presidential campaign. On the news of her exit Trump took to Twitter to joke with the Clinton connected Senator.
According to The Daily Wire:
President Donald Trump mocked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) on Wednesday after the New York senator officially announced that she was dropping out of the 2020 presidential race.
“After more than eight incredible months I am ending my presidential campaign. I know this isn’t the result we wanted – we wanted to win this race,” Gillibrand said in her final campaign video. “But it’s important to know when it’s not your time and to know how you can best serve your community and country. I believe I can best serve by helping to unite us to beat Donald Trump in 2020.”
“A sad day for the Democrats,” Trump replied to the news. “Kirsten Gillibrand has dropped out of the Presidential Primary. I’m glad they never found out that she was the one I was really afraid of!”
Gillibrand has been struggling to gain traction in her bid for the presidency. The presidential hopeful failed to qualify for the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) upcoming primary debates during the fall, in what many political strategists consider to be a critical event for any campaign.
Gillibrand was unable to meet the fundraising or polling threshold to qualify for the next Democrat debate.
