Bergdahl, who left his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was subsequently captured and held captive for years by the Taliban, pleaded guilty last week to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
Bergdahl's defense team argued that their client could not get a fair shake from the court because Trump, during a Rose Garden appearance on October 16, at first said he couldn't talk about the case and then added: "But I think people have heard my comments in the past".
The Bergdahl sentencing hearing is set to resume Wednesday. And he's also - they're setting up sentencing, so I'm not going to comment on him.
Bergdahl's lawyers said that Trump's reference to his past comments means he still holds the same views; namely, that Bergdahl is a "dirty, rotten traitor". "They got what they wanted", he said.
He said the military has an open-door policy for service members to voice concerns about chains of command, so Bergdahl had no reason to desert.

He added: "I wouldn't want it to go on any longer than it has". "I'm really emotional about it". This is also his first time as a producer.
"At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, 'I'm the guy who's gonna cut your throat, '" Bergdahl said.
"Well, I can't comment on Bowe Bergdahl because he's - as you know, they're - I guess he's doing something today, as we know".
But Nance said he was having a "hard time" with prosecutors' interpretation, noting public confidence in military courts was something he had to consider.
Bergdahl elected to be tried by a judge, not a panel of military officers, in August.
"I don't have any doubt whatsoever that I can be fair and impartial in the sentencing in this matter", Nance said.
Suns working hard to move disgruntled Eric Bledsoe
The point guard said in a very simple, but clear tweet: "I Dont wanna be here", which may be his unofficial trade request. The Suns are really bad, and Eric Bledsoe's future in Phoenix has been an uncertain topic the past few seasons.
He was traded for five Taliban officials freed from Guantanamo Bay.
In the motion last week, Bergdahl's attorneys argued that the brief comment from President Trump the day before shows the president still believes the disparaging comments he made on the campaign trail.
Bergdahl told investigators he snuck away from his outpost in 2009 with plans to run about 20 miles to Forward Operating Base Sharana in order to bring attention to what he saw as serious issues and leadership mistakes within his unit.
There are conflicting reports that six soldiers died searching for him.
Bergdahl says he never quite knew where he stood with the army as he performed "administrative duties" while awaiting his desertion trial.
