UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "One of the leaders of the effort to keep Tyson out of prison is Donald Trump.
TRUMP: You have a young woman that was in his room, his hotel room, late in the evening at her own will, who was seen dancing for the beauty contest, dancing with a big smile on her face."
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "So, you’re endorsing Trump, essentially."
TYSON: "I like, Trump, yeah. He should be president of the United States."
ANNOUNCER: "Paid for by Trusted Leadership PAC."

RADDATZ: "This is what your candidate said about Mike Tyson. Trump said at a rally in Indianapolis, Mike Tyson endorsed me. I love it. He sent out a tweet, “Mike, Iron Mike.” Is that the kind of endorsement that Donald Trump should be looking for?"
SANDERS: "Look, I think Donald Trump is looking for the endorsement and the vote of every American. And I think that’s why he’s doing so well. He’s not playing by the typical Washington playbook. And I think that’s one of the reasons that he’s doing so well in the primary and going to go on to win the general. He’s not a Washington insider, which is the biggest contrast that anyone can make against Hillary Clinton. He’s the ultimate outsider. She’s the ultimate insider. And in the year of the outsider, I think he’s going to do extremely well in November against her."
