President Donald Trump on Tuesday defended Bernie Sanders against Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s claim that Sanders told her a woman couldn’t win the presidency.

"I don’t know him. I don’t particularly like him, but I don’t believe he said it," Trump told supporters Tuesday at a rally in Milwaukee, Wis., adding that it's "not his deal."

“She said that Bernie stated strongly that a woman can’t win for president. A woman can win for president,” Trump added. “I don’t believe that Bernie said that. It’s not the kind of a thing he would say.”

Warren on Monday confirmed with CNN that Sanders did make the statement when the pair met at Warren’s apartment in Washington, D.C., in December 2018 to discuss the 2020 election.

CNN cited four people in relaying contents of the two-hour meeting.

"Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed,” she told the news outlet.

"I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry," Warren continued. "I'm in this race to talk about what's broken in this country and how to fix it — and that’s what I’m going to continue to do. I know Bernie is in the race for the same reason. We have been friends and allies in this fight for a long time, and I have no doubt we will continue to work together to defeat Donald Trump and put our government on the side of the people."

Sanders vehemently denied the report, saying, "It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn't win."
