Donald Trump could not remain silent during the first night of the Democratic National Convention, taking to Twitter to give his commentary on just about every primetime speaker. However, the one speech he did not say anything about was Michelle Obama‘s.
Throughout Monday, Trump reveled in the chaos caused by the Wikileaks dump of emails from the Democratic National Committee. He said that Sanders had “totally given up his fight for the people” by supporting Clinton. Trump also tweeted that Sanders got nothing in return for his support.
As the 10 p.m. hour rolled around last night, Trump settled in to tweet. “If Cory Booker is the future of the Democratic Party, they have no future! I know more about Cory than he knows about himself,” Trump wrote about New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s speech.
During the First Lady’s speech, he remained quiet. That’s surprising, since Obama’s speech included veiled attacks at Trump. She didn’t use his name, but when she said she wants a president “who knows this job and takes it seriously, someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters,” it was clear who she was referring to.
On Tuesday morning, Trump wrote that she “bombed.”
When it came to Sanders, Trump once again said that the Vermont senator wasted his time.
Sanders’ team responded to Trump’s tweet by telling him to “never tweet.”
