USA: 'Poor pathetic guy' - Beto O'Rourke mocked by Trump after ending presidential bid

United States, Tupelo
November 02, 2019 at 02:53 GMT +00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump mocked former presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke at a rally in Tupelo, Mississippi, on Friday, after O'Rourke officially ended his presidential campaign earlier in the day.

"Beto, did you hear? Beto. Beto. Ah that poor bastard, well. Poor pathetic guy. He was pathetic! Remember the arms are flailing. Remember that? He ran against Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz won," Trump said.

The US President also praised the recent killing of Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi al-Qurayshi.

"He's dead, and Baghdadi, he was a savage and a soulless monster, but his reign of terror is over. American special operators executed a masterful raid that ended his wretched life and punched out his ticket to hell I guess you could say," Trump said, to the cheers of the crowd in attendance.
