The Trump campaign released a statement shortly after Michigan was called for former Vice President Joe Biden, saying it doesn’t matter who wins the Democratic primary because they’re “two sides of the same coin.”
“It has never mattered who the Democrat nominee turns out to be, and now that there are only two options left, it is clear that they are two sides of the same coin,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “The Democrat candidate for president will be running on a big government socialist agenda regardless of the name on the ballot. It is also clear that the Democrat establishment has rallied around the confused Joe Biden in an effort to deny the nomination to Bernie Sanders.”

Parscale said regardless of how the Democratic primary unfolds from here on out, President Trump is on track for winning re-election.
There are 352 delegates at stake in six states on Tuesday: Michigan (125) Washington (89), Missouri (68), Mississippi (36), Idaho (20) and North Dakota (14).
At the time of writing, Biden won the biggest prize of the night, Michigan, as well as Missouri, Mississippi.
Democrats are now starting to say it's time to end the Democratic primary.
