Sanders: Trump Creates a Climate Where We See a Significant Increase in Hate Crimes

‘He’s creating the kind of divisiveness in this nation’


SANDERS: “Look, President Trump, din nobody else wants to see people mowed down and killed. He does not want the see that. But I think what he has created in this country with his incredible rhetoric or his racist rhetoric where he calls Mexicans rapists and criminals, where he almost condones in a rally when somebody was attacking somebody, he says, “I’ll pay the legal bills,” the violence, I think he creates a climate where we are seeing a significant increase in hate crimes in this country, hate crimes against Muslims, against Mexican, against Jews, he’s creating the kind of divisiveness in this nation that is the last thing that we should be doing some he creates the climate, but do I think that he wants to see somebody get shot? Absolutely not.”
