Trump Attacks Mike Bloomberg, Doesn\'t Seem To Realize He Wasn\'t Running  

President Donald Trump on Tuesday night attacked former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg for having a "very bad night" as the New Hampshire Democratic primary results came rolling in.

Just one problem: Bloomberg wasn't even on the ballot.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) eventually won a plurality in the Granite State, with former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg coming in a close second, followed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).

Trump tweeted:

Bloomberg is focusing on the March 3 "Super Tuesday" primary states and was not on the ballot in either New Hampshire or last week's caucuses in Iowa.

However, he did win an unusual victory of sorts in the unincorporated New Hampshire community of Dixville Notch, which traditionally votes at midnight and tallies the results immediately.

There were just five ballots cast.

Bloomberg won the lone GOP vote, and two of the four on the Democratic side, both via write-in ― giving him a victory in both parties in the remote community.

Jewish American voters have leaned Democratic for decades, but Republicans are hoping the recent steps toward normalized relations between Gulf states and Israel - which Trump vigorously touted earlier this month - bolster his appeal to Jewish voters. With battleground states like Pennsylvania, Florida and Michigan collectively decided in 2016 by fewer than 200,000 votes, any loss of the Jewish support by Democratic nominee Joe Biden could be pivotal. "Democrats like to say they have a majority of the Jewish vote," said Republican Jewish Coalition executive director Matt Brooks, whose group is spending $10 million to boost Trump and other GOP candidates in electoral battlegrounds ahead...

From the opening of his third presidential bid, Joe Biden has argued that he is in a unique position to mend a fractured nation and work - even with Republicans - to "unify the country" into some semblance of consensus. In the week since liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death, he's faced pressure from progressives seeking bolder action. President Donald Trump is expected to name his pick on Saturday, launching a confirmation process that may only deepen the nation's sectarian politics.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Friday denigrated FBI Director Christopher Wray's ability to detect voter fraud in the U.S. election and suggested that if he "drill down" more he would change his congressional testimony on the issue. Wray told lawmakers on Thursday he has not seen evidence of a coordinated national voter fraud effort, undercutting President Donald Trump's unfounded assault on mail-in balloting as a threat to election security.
