Trump considers Sanders the favorite of the pre-election race among the Democrats

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — U.S. Republican President Donald Trump believes Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is a clear favorite in the Democratic race. He made the corresponding statement on Wednesday, answering journalists’ questions in the White House during a meeting with Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno.

“Bernie Sanders is definitely an advantage,” Trump is convinced. According to the president, the senator “is doing very well.” “I think that people like his program, he is energetic, and his supporters are energetic. They like his program, but a lot of people don’t like this program,” he added and noted that he was ready to compete with Sanders.

The president also reiterated that he was ready to participate in debates with those who would prevail in the race among the Democrats. “Yes, of course, I really look forward to it,” said the head of the White House.

Sanders previously won the primary election in New Hampshire. He received more than 25% of the vote. It is followed by the former mayor of South Bend (Indiana) Pete Butagej. Both of them, as a result, enlisted the support of nine regional delegates, who would then go to the National Congress of the Democratic Party.

The primary election in New Hampshire serves as a barometer of the mood of voters in the northeastern United States. The name of rival Trump in the upcoming November 3 presidential election will be announced at the National Congress of the Democratic Party, which will be held July 13-16 in Milwaukee (Wisconsin).
