Responding to accusations from Mike Bloomberg's campaign that President Trump is "Bernie's new bro," Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Tuesday tweeted out a photograph of Bloomberg golfing with Trump, highlighting the friendship the two billionaires shared prior to Trump's rise in Republican politics.

Sanders was pushing back against the Bloomberg campaign's accusation that he was "deploying the very same attacks and tactics against Mike" that Trump himself had been using. The two politicians are "united in the campaign against Mike," the statement claimed.

In response, Sanders tweeted the photograph, showing Trump and Bloomberg on a New York golf course in 2007.

Sanders has previously criticized the former mayor of New York City for reportedly using his wealth to influence the election, declaring last week that "the American people are sick and tired of billionaires buying elections."
