Trump Makes Pitiful Attempt to Pander to Sanders Fans After He Was Asked If He'd Consider Bernie for VP (Video)

Bernie Sanders has vowed to stay in the race through the Democratic Convention, and it’s safe to say that both parties have taken note of his popularity.

“What brings us together is Donald Trump,” Hillary Clinton told CNN yesterday.

But what’s really surprising is that Trump is also looking to Sanders. Both Trump and Sanders are outsider candidates, who claim they are fighting against what they call a "rigged" political system and economy. And both candidates clearly “have a lot of animosity and distrust for Hillary Clinton,” as MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace put it.

“Would you take a few minutes to talk to him and consider him as your running mate?” Wallace asked Trump on MSNBC today.

“That’s a great question. ... I do have much bigger crowds than him,” Trump joked.

“I will say this. We have one thing very strongly in common. We know that the United States is being taken advantage of horribly on trade deals. The difference between Bernie and myself is that I know how to make those trade deals fantastic and he doesn’t," claimed Trump.

But for Trump, that's hardly a dealbreaker: "He is second—I will say that—he's above any other Republican."
