It hasn't taken long for Donald Trump to rip into Beto O'Rourke.

The Democratic nominee announced in a Tweet on Friday that he is ending his presidential campaign.

Hours later the US President said O'Rourke "quit like a dog" and used a cuss word to describe his political opponent at a "Keep America Great" campaign rally at BancorpSouth Arena in Tupelo, Mississippi.

The former Texas congressman has been of one Trump's most vocal critics.
