Trump is demanding that Hillary and Debbie Wasserman Schultz resign — do you agree with him? Or do you think that they need to stay right where they are?
Donald Trump reacted swiftly to the news that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned by dashing off a flurry of tweets.
The Republican nominee called the congresswoman ‘overrated,’ while commending his own party’s leader, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus for being ‘tough’ and ‘smart.’
Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort also chimed in linking the Democrats’ leaked emails to their nominee Hillary Clinton‘s own email scandal, suggesting that Clinton should follow Wasserman Schultz’s lead and drop out.
Wasserman Schultz announced her resignation Sunday afternoon on the eve of the start of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
The Democratic chairwoman heeded to the escalating calls for her departure after party emails leaked to Wikileaks and published online showed a bias toward Clinton, over her longtime rival Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
This morning Sanders repeatedly called for Wasserman Schultz to step down.
”I think she should resign. Period,’ he told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.
