President Donald Trump, in continuing to defend Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), said that 2020 Democratic candidate could have won more states during the Super Tuesday contest if Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wasnt in the race.
Warren and Sanders, who are both from northeastern states, are running on similar, progressive platforms.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has styled himself as a moderate in the face of Sanderss progressivism, took those three states.
Warren, he added, “wont go down in history as a winner, but she may very well go down as the all time great SPOILER!”
Trumps Wednesday comment about Warren has continued a trend of the president avoiding direct attacks on Sanders while claiming that the establishment wing of the Democratic party is attempting to “rig” the election against Sanders, who has a significant grassroots following.
After the Super Tuesday results came in, Warren announced that her campaign would reassess their strategy going forward. The senator hasnt won a single state, including her home state of Massachusetts, but picked up 42 delegates on Tuesday.
So far, Biden has acquired the most delegates in the race so far, coming after former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen.

Buttigieg and Klobuchar both endorsed Biden, while the former vice president also picked up an endorsement from former Democratic 2020 candidate Beto ORourke when he spoke during a Biden campaign rally in Texas.
Biden is projected to win nine states, including Texas, while Sanders is poisedRead More – Source
