Trump says Bernie Sanders is a 'nasty guy,' but he doesn't think he said a woman can't be president

President Trump sided with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday night, telling a crowd in Milwaukee he doesn't believe Sanders said a woman couldn't win the presidency in 2020.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) confirmed to CNN that Sanders made the comment during a 2018 private meeting. Sanders has denied making the remark, and Trump backed him up during his campaign rally. It wasn't much of a surprise that he weighed in and sided with Sanders, as Trump regularly mocks Warren and did so again at his rally.

"I don't believe that he said this because you know, I don't know him," Trump said. "I don't particularly like him. He's a nasty guy ... but it's not his deal. She said that Bernie stated strongly that a woman can't win for president. A woman can win for president."
