Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Saturday that people from “Bernie’s crowd” — referring to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — are the ones protesting his campaign events, Politico reported.

Trump’s comments came after he had to cancel a campaign rally in Chicago when hordes of protesters showed up.

“Bernie was saying, ‘Mr. Trump should speak to his crowd.’ You know where they come from? Bernie’s crowd,” Trump said, Politico reported.

Trump said “Bernie’s people” were interrupting his rallies.

“It just makes all of our friends more angry. We’re going to go to the polls on Tuesday and we’re going to be resounding victory,” Trump said.
