Sanders is Jewish but says he doesn't participate in organized religion.

About a week ago, Sanders said at the CNN Democratic debate, "I am very proud of being Jewish, and that is an essential part of who I am as a human being."

Trump called Burns "incredible," adding that he "did a good job."

"And by the way, our pastor who was just up here, was so incredible," said Trump. "He was at one of the meetings. He was so great. He did a good job."
