Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump confused a description of Bernie Sanders’s Democratic presidential campaign with his own. That’s right, the GOP front-runner confused his candidacy with that of a democratic socialist.
“I wanted to describe a candidate to you,” MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski told Trump during a town hall in Charleston, S.C., according to The Hill.
“That candidate is considered a political outsider by all of the pundits,” she said. “He’s tapping into the anger of voters, delivers a populist message.”
“He believes everyone in the country should have healthcare [and] he advocates for hedge fund managers to pay higher taxes,” Brzezinski continued. “He is drawing thousands of people at his rallies and bringing in a lot of new voters into the political process. Who am I describing?”
“You’re describing Donald Trump,” the narcissistic hotel magnate declared.
“Actually, I was describing Bernie Sanders,” Brzezinski responded.

“I’ll tell you, there’s one thing we’re very similar in,” he said of Sanders. “He knows that our country is being ripped off big league, big league, on trade. The problem is, he can’t do anything about it, he’s not going to be able to, whereas I’m going to do things.”
Trump went on to argue that Sanders lacks his comprehension of global markets.
“I mean, he doesn’t understand what’s happening,” Trump said. “I’m talking about negotiating with them. We have all the cards, [but] we don’t play them.”
“We’re negotiating against great negotiators. China, Mexico [and] Japan – we’re going to start doing great things with those. And that’s the thing – Bernie Sanders can’t do it,” he added.
According to a new Quinnipiac University poll, John Kasich is gaining speed. If he got the Republican nomination for president, he would beat Hillary Clinton, 47 percent to 39 percent.
Here it comes.
However, the same poll concludes that Kasich would lose to Senator Bernie Sanders.
Pollsters say Senator Sanders would beat all the potential GOP candidates.
Trump is nothing like Bernie Sanders.
