Donald Trump knows how to take advantage of a good opportunity.

After Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz went after Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt supporters for causing a disturbance at the Nevada state democratic convention, Trump immediately picked up on the comments, accusing the DNC of rigging the democratic primary system for Hillary Clinton.

Schultz told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that Sanders supporters, who were apparently getting violent at the Nevada event, were “unacceptable.”

“What happened at that convention was unacceptable,” Schultz said.

“Even if the Sanders supporters were frustrated, there is never, under any circumstance, a place for violence and intimidation to be resorted to in response,” Schultz continued.

Watch her interview here:

Following Schultz’s comments against Sanders supporters, Trump picked up on the statement, defending the Vermont socialist, saying “the system is rigged.” 

A number of Sanders supporters have pledged to not vote for Clinton in the general election if she is the nominee against Trump.
