Donald Trump Saturday slammed Hillary Clinton for her comments about Bernie Sanders supporters at a private fundraiser in February that were leaked to news outlets on Friday.

Here's the Republican nominee's Twitter post:

 At a fundraiser in McLean, Va., hosted by former U.S. Ambassador Beatrice Welters, Clinton called the Vermont senator's backers "children of the Great Recession" who were "living in their parents' basement."

She linked these attributes to why millennials were more likely to support the Vermont senator over her.

The remarks were recorded and leaked to The Washington Free Beacon, which published them on Friday. They had been hacked from a Clinton campaign staffer's email account.

"They feel they got their education — and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves," Clinton said during a question-and-answer session. "They don’t see much of a future."

The Democrat noted a conversation she had with "a group of young black millennials."

"One of the young women said: 'You know, none of us feel that we have the job that we should have gotten out of college. And we don’t believe the job market is going to give us much of a chance.'

"That is a mindset that is really affecting their politics," Clinton said.

"If you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing."
