President Donald Trump reacted to news that Democratic presidential primary candidates Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg were dropping out of the race. Both candidates endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden, the lone moderate left in the primary.

During a campaign rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, Trump claimed that the two had “made a deal” with Biden and should be “impeached.” Senators cannot be impeached and Buttigieg doesn’t hold an elected office of any kind currently.

“Sounds like they made a deal, ya know?” Trump said before repeating the allegations against him that launched his own impeachment trial. “Quid pro quo! They made a deal! Impeach them! They should be impeached! They should be impeached! Quid pro quo!”

Buttigieg endorsed the former Vice President at a campaign stop yesterday evening in a gracious speech that urged moderates to coalesce around Biden. Klobuchar and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) endorsed Biden at a rally later that evening.

In a touching moment, Biden accepted Mayor Pete’s endorsement and said Buttigieg reminded him of his son Beau. Biden’s son, also a politician, died in 2015.
