(AP) – Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump blames Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders for increasingly frequent disruptions at the GOP hopeful’s massive campaign rallies, and he says he has the answer: Send his supporters to Sanders’ rallies.
Sanders on Sunday offered a reply: Bring ’em on.
Trump took to Twitter on Sunday, writing that the Vermont senator is “lying when he says his disruptors aren’t told to go to my rallies. Be careful Bernie, or my supporters will go to yours!”
The answer followed from Sanders’ official Twitter account: “Send them. They deserve to see what a real honest politician sounds like.”
Both Sanders and Trump have roused their supporters by railing against international trade agreements and decades of wage stagnation. But Sanders, along with Trump’s Republican rivals, have noted that Trump adds caustic rhetoric about immigration, drawing protesters who end up clashing with his supporters.
