Bernie Sanders said he got warmer treatment from President Joe Biden's campaign team than that of Hillary Clinton.

The Vermont senator told CNN's Gloria Berger on Sunday that Biden's team made him feel "very welcome" when Sanders was running against him in the 2020 presidential campaign, according to a clip of the interview reposted by Mediaite.

He said Biden reached out to him to talk and they had "very useful conversations and friendly conversations."

Berger indicated that that was different from the Clinton campaign when they were opponents in the 2016 election, and Sanders agreed.

"I was tolerated," Sanders replied.

He added: "They wanted my support, obviously."
