Trump was referring to recent allegations brought by prominent Democrats that the DNC preferred Clinton's campaign to Sanders's in 2016. Donna Brazile, a former chairwoman for the DNC, says in a new book that a deal was struck to effectively give the Clinton campaign control of the party's finances before she became the official Democratic nominee for president. 

The topic was already a contentious one among Democrats who think Sanders would have been a better candidate than Clinton.
