Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump calls Sen. Bernie Sanders “a wacko” and predicts that he’ll win over the people who are supporting Sanders for president.

Sanders suggested on Sunday that Trump’s supporters should back him instead.

“Many of Trump’s supporters are working-class people and they’re angry,” Sanders said on CBS’ Face The Nation.

“They’re angry because they’re working longer hours for lower wages,” he added. “They’re angry because their jobs have left this country and gone to China or other low-wage countries.”

“What Trump has done with some success is taken that anger, taken those fears which are legitimate and converted them into anger against Mexicans, anger against Muslims, and in my view that is not the way we’re going to address the major problems facing our country,” Sanders argued.
