Trump: I’ll Take ‘Close to 40 Percent’ of Sanders Fans

Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he would easily convert “close to 40 percent” of Bernie Sander’s supporters.

“I’m hearing we’re going to get close to 40 percent of his supporters,” he told listeners during a campaign rally in Albuquerque, N.M., Tuesday night.

“We’re going to get them because he’s not going to win. The system is rigged against Bernie so he can’t win. A lot of Bernie Sanders people have said they’re voting for Trump. We’re going to get tremendous numbers from Bernie Sanders.”

The Hill reports:

Trump said he admires Sanders, despite his seemingly impossible battle with Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“I have to give him credit,” he said. “‘Crazy Bernie’ is out there trying and he’s trying hard. Hillary cannot even put Bernie away.

“’Crooked Hillary’ can’t even put him away,” Trump added of the Democratic presidential front-runner. “It’s a mess and it’s going to get worse and worse.

“Bernie Sanders said that Hillary Clinton is not qualified. He basically said it’s because she has bad judgement. She really does have bad judgement.”

Trump added that Sanders lacked the victories he had earned fighting against establishment politicians in their respective parties.

“When you win by landslides, every single state, no matter how they do it, you win,” he said of the GOP’s presidential primary rules. “It’s like a boxer — you knock them out.

“We’re all in a rigged system, folks,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee added. “I’m going to break up the rigged system.

“The system is against me, and you know what? It always has been. I love it. There’s nothing better than beating the system.”

Trump became the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee earlier this month, outlasting 16 other contenders for that honor.

Clinton, meanwhile, leads Sanders in the Democratic nominating contest nationwide, boasting 1,768 delegates to his 1,497. At least 2,382 delegates are necessary for avoiding a contested convention in July.

    How could he get 50% of Sanders vote? They stand for two different things. Trump is day dreaming. They will stay home or vote for Hillary.

      Nope most bernie supporters like myself will write in Bernie or vote Jill stein. Why would we vote for yet another evil?? Given that so many are voting for bernie even as a write in if not on the ballot… Hillary will still probably lose to bernie anyway.What am I talking about the state audit found her guilty of violating national security and putting our security at risk..
      Bye Bye Hillary!

        That is just stupid because if Hillary is the nominee and you write in Bernie than don’t complain if Trump wins.I won’t votef or Bernie for many reasons. I don’t want to see Medicare for all. As a senior who is on Medicare you still need a supplement. Plus medicare has some of its own financial problems. Free college for all? Who pays? I have a 19 year old living next to me who is pregnant and on Medicaid. She uses the E.R. like her personal physician. She doesn’t work nor does her boyfriend. Why should I pay for her to go to college. I paid for my own two.
        If Hillary was found guilty so was Colin Powell and C. Rice.

        I’m a Bernie supporter, but you’re just dreaming if you think Hillary will lose to Bernie. If Hillary gets the nomination, the only sane thing to do is to vote for her. She may have some things I don’t agree with, but on the whole she is the logical choice if Bernie doesn’t get the nomination. Don’t vote for her if you want President Trump.
