“Bernie Sanders is running. Personally, I think he missed his time, but I like Bernie. He’s the one person on trade, he sort of would agree. The problem is he doesn’t know what to do about it,” said the President.
“I wish Bernie well. It’ll be interesting to see how he does. What happened to Bernie was not so nice. He was taken advantage of. He ran great four years ago and was not treated with respect by Clinton. What happened to Bernie Sanders four years ago was quite sad,” he added.
