Leading Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says Michael Bloomberg’s performance at his first debate means President Donald Trump would likely “chew him up and spit him out” in a debate if he were to win the nomination.
Sanders spoke to Anderson Cooper Thursday in Las Vegas in an interview to be broadcast on 60 Minutes Sunday, February 23, at 7 p.m. on CBS.
Below is part of Cooper’s interview with Sanders, released Friday on “CBS This Morning.”
ANDERSON COOPER: Were you surprised by how unprepared he seemed for some very basic obvious questions at a debate in Nevada?
BERNIE SANDERS: Yes, I was. I was. And– and– and, you know– and if that’s what happened in a Democratic debate, you know, I– I think it’s quite likely that Trump will chew him up and spit him out.
