“I think they are doing everything to scare people, and I think it’s ridiculous and I find them very notorious,” Trump told reporters on Friday when he left Washington DC to participate in a campaign meeting in Charleston, South Carolina
The president then said, while some Democrats responded adequately: “Some of them are trying to gain political favor by saying a lot about it,” he said.

“Do your work,” Sanders Trump shouted.
Democrats hold their presidential elections in South Carolina on Saturday.
The presidential primary GOP was canceled due to the established status of Trump.

He said that some people give him credit for the answer.
“But the only ones who aren’t, don’t mean it – it’s political. It’s political, “Trump said.
