Activists for Trump are urging Republican voters to cross over and vote for Bernie Sanders in a show of support for the president.
The activists said, “We’ve waited since 2016 to vote again for Donald Trump. With no Republican primary, voters will have to wait until November to vote for our president, but there’s still a way that South Carolina Republicans can support President Trump….We’re asking South Carolina Republicans to show their support for President Trump by crossing over the Democratic primary and voting for Sen. Bernie Sanders.”

It couldn’t be any more explicit. A Republican vote for Bernie Sanders is a vote for Donald Trump. The Russians, Trump, and the Republican Party are all trying to get Bernie Sanders the Democratic nomination.
Trump and the Republican Party aren’t afraid of Bernie Sanders. They are trying to get him the nomination because they can’t wait to destroy him.
