As Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders duke it out prior to Saturday night's debate, GOP presidential frontrunner got in on the fight.
Business mogul Donald Trump, unsurprisingly, attacked Clinton in a tweet Saturday morning as well as retweeted other scathing tweets from his followers.
"See, Sanders backed Hillary on E-mails at the debate, hurting himself, and then she threw him under the bus (but failed)," Trump wrote. "Disloyal person!"

Trump's tweet came as Sanders' camp fights Clinton's as well as the Democratic National Committee over a supposed data breach. The Vermont senator's presidential campaign was momentarily suspended from looking at the DNC's voter database after at least one staffer was accused of looking at Clinton's private data during a technical glitch and stealing millions of dollars worth of data. Not long after, Sanders' campaign filed a federal lawsuit to regain access to the data.
Late Friday night, Sanders' campaign's access was reinstated as the campaign and the DNC seemingly reached an agreement of sorts.
The Republican National Committee also took an opportunity to address the controversy on Friday.
"Every candidate has equal access to our superior data file at the RNC because we believe primaries should be a process free from party interference and that puts voters and campaigns first," RNC chief strategist & communications director Sean Spicer said in a statement. "That’s why it is so troubling to see the DNC engage in such heavy-handed favoritism benefitting Hillary Clinton, a pattern which will continue tomorrow night with another debate deliberately scheduled to limit viewership."
Clinton and Sanders will be joined by former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley Saturday evening for the third presidential debate among the candidates in Manchester, New Hampshire hosted by ABC News.
According to Real Clear Politics' aggregated polling data, Clinton leads the Democrats at 55.9 percent. Sanders is polling at 31.1 percent and O'Malley at 3.0 percent.
