Presidential candidate and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is scheduled to reassess the viability of his presidential campaign after several primary losses to former Vice President Joe Biden.

What are the details?

According to a Wednesday report by The Hill, Sanders is taking his losses seriously.

In a statement, Sanders' Presidential Campaign Manager Faiz Shakir said, "The next primary contest is three weeks away. Sen. Sanders is going to be having conversations with his supporters to assess his campaign."

He continued, "In the immediate term, however, he is focused on the government response to the coronavirus outbreak and ensuring that we take care of working people and the most vulnerable."

The announcement comes on the heels of Biden's primary wins Tuesday in Arizona, Florida, and Illinois.

According to the outlet, Biden's wins put him in the position that he "will have a nearly insurmountable lead in delegates by the time all of the votes are counted from the latest nominating contests."

At the time of this writing, Biden has over 1,100 delegates. Sanders has just over 800 delegates.

On Tuesday night, Biden tweeted a message of thanks to his supporters.

He wrote, "Thank you to everyone in Arizona, Florida, and Illinois who supported our campaign. From day one, our goal has been to unify our party and our nation — and tonight, we are one step closer to achieving that goal. Let's do this, together."

What else?

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump predicted that Sanders would soon pull out of the race.

In a tweet, Trump wrote, "The DNC will have gotten their fondest wish and defeated Bernie Sanders, far ahead of schedule. Now they are doing everything possible to be nice to him in order to keep his supporters. Bernie has given up, just like he did last time. He will be dropping out soon! MAGA/KAG."
