President Trump on Tuesday downplayed Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) chances in the 2020 presidential race, telling reporters he believes the Vermont senator “missed his time” to capture the Democratic nomination.
Trump was asked during an Oval Office announcement on space policy for his reaction to Sanders announcing his presidential bid earlier in the day.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Personally I think he missed his time,” Trump told reporters. “But I like Bernie because he is one person that, you know, on trade he sort of would agree on trade. I’m being very tough on trade, he was tough on trade.”
“The problem is he doesn’t know what to do about it,” Trump continued. “We’re doing something very spectacular on trade. But I wish Bernie well. It will be interesting to see how he does.”
President Trump said Sanders was taken advantage of four years ago, and was not treated with respect by Clinton. “You’ve got a lot of people running… but only one person’s going to win… I hope you know who that person is,” he said with a smile, as he dismissed reporters from the room.
