President jokes that Bloomberg needs a box to stand on for debates; media fact checks the claim
During a special pre-super bowl interview, President Trump proclaimed that his Democratic rival Bernie Sanders is a Communist, while slamming other Democrats by saying that at least Sanders sticks to what he believes.
“I think he’s a communist. I mean you know, look. I think of communism when I think of Bernie. Now you could say socialist, but didn’t he get married in Moscow?” Trump stated, during the appearance with Sean Hannity.
“I’m not knocking it, but I think of Bernie sort of as a socialist but far beyond a socialist.” Trump added, before urging that Sanders is“true to what he believes,” unlike the other candidates.
“Elizabeth Warren. She’s not true to it. I call her fairy tale because everything is a fairy tale. That’s how Pocahontas got started. Everything is a fairy tale. This woman can’t tell the truth.” Trump asserted.
Turning to billionaire Michael Bloomberg, Trump said “I just think of little.”
“You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. Okay, it’s okay, there’s nothing wrong. You can be short. Why should he get a box to stand on, okay?” Trump joked.
“He wants a box for the debates. Why should he be entitled to that? Really. Does that mean everyone else gets a box?” the President continued.
