Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

WASHINGTON — Look out for Bernie Sanders to help front-runner Donald Trump compete against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Not purposely, of course. But the Republican front-runner says that he’ll use Sanders’ sound bite calling Clinton unqualified later in the campaign. Trump didn’t mention that Sanders has since retreated from his own comment and said that Clinton, a lawyer, former senator and onetime secretary of state, is intelligent and experienced.

On “Fox News Sunday,” Trump said Sanders’ comments back up his own charge that Clinton is only a viable candidate because she’s a woman.

He spoke ahead of Tuesday’s Indiana primary, with 57 GOP delegates at stake. Trump, Clinton, Sanders and GOP rival Ted Cruz have events in the state Sunday. Clinton also is delivering a speech to the NAACP in Detroit.
