Trump Actually Thinks He Is The Same Person As Sanders

The Republican presidential frontrunner publicly acknowledged he has at least one thing in common with Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.



Business mogul Donald Trump and Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders might be both outsiders in their respective parties, but they have much more in common than they  particularly Trump  realized.

During a special town hall event in Charleston, South Carolina, MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski asked the real estate mogul to identify a presidential candidate from his campaign description.

“That candidate is considered a political outsider by all of the pundits,” the moderator told Trump Wednesday night. “He’s tapping into the anger of voters, delivers a populist message. He believes everyone in the country should have health care [and] he advocates for hedge fund managers to pay higher taxes.”

She described the candidate as someone who is drawing thousands of people at his rallies, bringing in new voters, and is not beholden to any super PAC.

“You’re describing Donald Trump,” the billionaire responded, because everything needs to be about him, obviously.

“Actually, I was describing Bernie Sanders,” Brzezinski countered, prompting a laugh from the audience. “Is it insulting? Because there are some similarities.”

Trump, who looked positively stumped at this revelation, conceded that he did share one quality with the Vermont senator.

“He knows that our country is being ripped off big league — big league — on trade,” the Republican admitted. “The problem is he can’t do anything about it.”

He then went to add that Sanders “doesn’t understand” the problem and will “never be able to do anything about it.”
