Trump on Sanders: ‘May He Rest in Peace’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump referred to Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders as someone of the past during a campaign rally in Georgia Monday evening.

“May he rest in peace,” Trump joke when mentioning Sanders. “You know, he had an operation today. I think it was a hernia operation.”

Sanders underwent elective hernia surgery at George Washington University on Monday and will be out of work until Tuesday, his Senate office announced. He’s expected to return to the campaign trail later this week, his campaign spokesman Michael Briggs said.

“You know why” he had a hernia operation? Trump asked the crowd. “Carrying around too much tax problems,” he said.

Trump also boasted that the crowds at his rallies are “so much bigger” than at the rallies of Bernie Sanders.
