Sanders: Trump Sent Message to Racists and Neo-Nazis that ‘This Is Okay’

‘The president bears some responsibility to that, absolutely’

EXCERPT:

SANDERS: "When you have a president who doesn't have the guts to say what the vast majority of the people understand to be true, that white supremacy and neo-Nazism have got to be condemned, he can't even do that! The message he is sending out to racists and neo-Nazis all over the country is it's okay, hey. In fact, you heard some language to that, 'The President hasn't condemned us. Why don't we do more rallies? Why don't we spread the word of white supremacy and racism and neo-Nazism?' So do I think the President bears some responsibility for that? Absolutely, yes."
