The biggest political story over the last 24 hours has involved the former chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Donna Brazile accusing Hillary Clinton of rigging the Democratic primary against Bernie Sanders in 2016. In response, Donald Trump has not held back from using the news to his advantage.

Trump on DNC

The 2016 presidential election will go down as one of the most shocking and controversial in recent memory, mostly due to the fact that Donald Trump came out the winner with questions of Russian interference hanging in the balance.

Despite this, the Democratic primary is not without its own speculation following Hillary Clinton's victory over Bernie Sanders. While the former Secretary of State was the winner, supporters of Sanders accused the DNC of rigging the primary in favor of Clinton, which appeared likely after former chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz resigned due to internal backlash. Due to the revolt from many on the left, those who support Clinton blame Sanders' backers for not rallying behind her and contributing to the defeat in the general election. Fast forward to Thursday and the details of Donna Brazile's new book that claim Clinton reached a backdoor deal with the DNC to push Sanders' out. As seen during a string of tweets on November 3, Trump had a few thing to say about it.

Taking to his Twitter account on Friday morning, Donald Trump wasted no time taking advantage of the news of the day. "The real story on Collusion is in Donna B's new book," Trump tweeted, before adding, "Crooked Hillary bought the DNC & then stole the Democratic Primary from Crazy Bernie!"

"Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries!

Lets go FBI & Justice Dept," Donald Trump posted, in reference to the recent comments by Sen. Elizabeth Warren who came out in agreement that the Democratic primary was rigged against the senator from Vermont. "Bernie Sanders supporters have every right to be apoplectic of the complete theft of the Dem primary by Crooked Hillary!" he went on to say.

In his final tweet on the matter as of press time, Donald Trump doubled down on his attack. "I always felt I would be running and winning against Bernie Sanders, not Crooked H, without cheating, I was right," he concluded.

Moving forward

As drama surrounds the Democratic Party, Donald Trump has decided to use the turmoil to deflect from the issues plaguing his own administration. With the pressure mounting on the president, additional charges are expected to be filed in the ongoing Russian investigation.
