Sanders: My Campaign Makes Trump ‘Very, Very Nervous’
Bernie Sanders suggested on Sunday that his campaign is making Donald Trump “very nervous.”
“I think you’ve got a guy who is getting very, very nervous,” he told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”
“I understand that, because the last national poll had us 18 points ahead of him. Some state polls had us even more ahead of him.”
The Hill reports:
Sanders argued that Trump’s past remarks offer him plenty of ammunition should they battle for voters next November.
“This is a man who is dividing up his country in very serious ways, frightening ways,” the Democratic presidential contender said.
“I think what we are seeing in the Trump campaign is not only racist attacks, but what you’re seeing is attacks on Muslims, on women [and] on veterans,” Sanders added.
“To attack Sen. John McCain [R-Ariz.] as a POW is crazy. There was a big debate in the United Kingdom parliament on whether or not he should even be allowed to enter the United Kingdom.”
Sanders is currently locked in a fierce battle for the Democratic presidential nomination with front-runner Hillary Clinton.
The former secretary of State leads Sanders by more than 11 points nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
