Donald Trump Welcomes Bernie Sanders Supporters ‘With Open Arms’

Whether or not they will accept is another story

Donald Trump is trying to woo Bernie Sanders supporters after Hillary Clinton was declared the presumptive Democratic nominee.

During a speech on Tuesday night — the same night Clinton gave a historic victory speech after beating Sanders in a number of states — Trump told Sanders supporters that he wants their vote.

“To all of those Bernie Sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of super delegates, we welcome you with open arms,” he said.

“And by the way, the terrible trade deals that Bernie was so vehemently against — and he’s right on that — will be taken care of far better than anyone ever thought possible. And that’s what I do,” he continued.

One has to wonder if Sanders supporters really would switch allegiances to Trump, given the fact that he is the embodiment of everything Sanders has railed against this entire campaign.

On Tuesday, Clinton won four of the six state contests: New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota and California, the last of which offered the most delegates. Sanders, however, has vowed to stay in the race despite Clinton having more than enough delegates to secure the nomination.

“The struggle continues,” Sanders told supporters the same night.”Next Tuesday, we continue the fight in the last primary in Washington D.C. Then we take our fight to Philadelphia.”
