Trump appeared to defend the Vermont senator amid the claims while speaking to supporters at a rally in Milwaukee, saying, “I don’t know him. I don’t particularly like him, but I don’t believe he said it,” adding that it’s “not the kind of thing he’d say.”
The president then said he believed a woman can win the White House.

Sanders initially denied a CNN report that he made the comment during an exchange with Warren in December 2018. But Warren said in a statement Monday night that Sanders “disagreed” with her belief that a woman could win the presidency.
The debate over the exchange is the latest instance of tensions bursting into the open between the two senators, who are the progressive standard-bearers in the Democratic presidential field and have both been entrenched near the top of the polls. They are set to appear in the latest Democratic debate Tuesday night in Iowa.
Trump a day earlier sought to seize on the potential rift between the two campaigns, tweeting that he believed there was a “feud brewing.”
The president and his campaign have started focusing additional attention on Sanders, who rocketed to the top of a recent Iowa poll just weeks ahead of the caucuses there. Trump observed during Tuesday’s rally that Sanders was “surging” in the polls.
