Trump Predicts Paul Will Soon Exit Race
Donald Trump is back to picking on Rand Paul again. On Tuesday, he predicted that the lowly ranked GOP senator will soon bow out of the presidential race.
“Prediction: Rand Paul has been driven out of the race by my statements about him – he will announce soon,” the real estate mogul tweeted Tuesday morning.
“I hope that when Rand Paul gets out of the race – he is at 1 percent – his supporters come over to me,” the front-runner added. “I will do a much better job for them.”
On Monday, Paul made it clear that he wasn’t finished and that he would keep working hard to secure additional votes.
“By no means am I finished,” he told host Alisyn Camerota on CNN’s “New Day.”
“I’m just getting started. I think we’ll be around just as long as Trump, if not longer,” he added.
The Hill reports:
Paul has repeatedly clashed with Trump during the race, characterizing him as a false conservative who will eventually betray his supporters.
“How can anyone in my party think this clown is fit to be president?” Paul asked Camerota Monday. “How did we get the race for the most important office in the free world to sink to such low depths?”
Trump has countered that Paul’s White House run is “hopeless” and that the senator does not deserve attention from voters.
Reports emerged Monday that Paul is shifting his attention in the coming weeks to raising funds for his Senate reelection bid.
Two GOP presidential contenders have already called it quits this month.
