Trump Says People From ‘Bernie’s Crowd’ Are The Ones Protesting

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
