Trump tries to attract Sanders' supporters

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Donald Trump is unveiling a new strategy to attract Bernie Sanders' supporters.

The Republican nominee on Saturday night will highlight a leaked audio recording of Hillary Clinton from a private fundraiser in February, when she was still running against Sanders in the Democratic primary. In the recording, Clinton says many young people who support Sanders are living in their parents' basements, unsatisfied with their education and jobs.

In prepared remarks released by Trump's campaign ahead of a Saturday night rally in Pennsylvania, Trump says, "Hillary Clinton thinks Bernie supporters are hopeless and ignorant basement dwellers."

The Trump campaign thinks it can attract a significant number of Sanders' Democratic supporters who are unhappy with Clinton as their nominee.

Sanders has endorsed Clinton and campaigned with her earlier in the week.
