Donald Trump trolls Democrats on Twitter, claims DNC chair election rigged

Perez won the party chairman election Saturday on the second ballot during a vote in Atlanta.

Perez defeated Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison in a tight Saturday race for the chairmanship.

"Unity is essential. We've got to walk out here in unity, not just between the candidates, but between the groups that support all the candidates", Ellison said.

Perez also received the congratulations of Republican President Donald Trump, who squeezed in a jab in his tweet. From a field of seven candidates, Democrats elected Tom Perez to chair the DNC in a final vote of 235 to Keith Ellison's 200. Upon accepting the position, Ellison sought to rally his frustrated supporters - some of whom stormed out of the room following Perez's victory - behind the new DNC chair.

In a move to quell any internal divisions, Perez made his first move as chairman to appoint Ellison as deputy chair. "It is imperative that Tom understands that the same-old, same-old is not working and that we must open the doors of the party to working people and young people in a way that has never been done before", Sanders said.

John Boehner: Obamacare repeal and replace "not going to happen"
This report today from Talking Points Memo details a speech Boehner gave Thursday at a health-care conference in Orlando. Boehner resigned from Congress in 2015 due to the deep divides in the Republican House Caucus.

Trump suggested that party insiders had fixed the vote for Perez, bending to the wishes of Hillary Clinton, his vanquished opponent in last year's presidential election. He had the support of heavy-hitters in the party establishment, including former Vice President Joe Biden and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. "Donald Trump, up in the morning tweeting about us. We need to redefine the role of the DNC so that we're helping to elect people from the school board to the Senate", Perez added.

It was revealed in the email leak that Schultz showed bias against Sanders' presidential campaign, and was succeeded as DNC chair by Donna Brazile, who served in an interim role, but ran into controversy as well.

Trump said that the vote for post of the DNC chairman post was "rigged".

"Given the threat that the Trump administration poses to core Democratic values, I think Tom has to think real hard about how they are going to try to oppose Republicans where they have to", Manley told the Herald.
