President Trump used Beto O’Rourke’s words from the beginning of his 2020 campaign to mock the end of his presidential bid. In a celebratory tweet, Trump pointed to O’Rourke’s Vanity Fair campaign launch and scoffed at his campaign-ending announcement. When O’Rourke announced earlier this year he was running, he claimed he felt he was destined to be president, saying, “Man, I’m just born to be in it.”
Remember all the times Hillary and Obama publicly mocked each Republican minutes after they dropped out?
Oh no, Beto just dropped out of race for President despite him saying he was “born for this.” I don’t think so!
