As an example, Sharpton compared campaigning for President to boxing and he referenced that he and Trump used to run into each other at boxing matches around the time that Mike Tyson was competing.

‘You don’t become champion by just saying, I’ll get by this round.’ You gotta take the title,” Sharpton declared.

He continued, “I didn’t see anybody on the stage last night, or in the ring that really said, ‘I’m taking charge. I can be President. I can take on Donald Trump.’ Cause he is going to come in with that kind of mindset. And I don’t see that mindset yet in any if the candidates.”Videos Below
