Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders had rallies less than a mile from each other in Albany, New York, on Monday. I went to both rallies and asked each group of supporters how they felt about "the wall" that Donald Trump wants to build on the border of Mexico.

Here's what people at the Bernie rally said:
