Trump To Sanders Fans: ‘We Welcome You With Open Arms’

After winning several more Republican primaries on Tuesday, Donald Trump argued that Bernie Sanders’ supporters should get behind his presidential bid, The Hill reported.

“To all those Bernie Sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates, we welcome you with open arms,” Trump said. “We can’t fix a rigged system by relying on, and I mean this so strongly, on the very people who rigged it. The Clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves.”

The billionaire businessman read a prepared speech from a teleprompter, despite having criticized other politicians for doing so. He has earned enough delegates to the GOP national convention in Cleveland, Ohio, next month to secure the party’s nomination in the first round of balloting. However, some Republican leaders reportedly are conspiring to make an establishment candidate their standard-bearer against Clinton in the general election this November.

Trump, already under fire for his controversial rhetoric and policy proposals, continues to clarify his remarks about Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding in a trial involving the now-defunct Trump University. The plaintiffs allege that the real-estate mogul defrauded them.

Trump has ridiculed the judge, calling him “a Mexican” and arguing that he cannot be impartial because of the candidate’s plans to build a wall along the southern U.S. border and deport all of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants from the United States. Curiel was born in Indiana.
