Booker: ‘We’re in a Time of Increased Fear in Our Country’ Because of Trump

‘There is something seriously wrong when mendacity is the norm’

BOOKER: "We’re in a time of increased fear in our country."
TAPPER: "Because of Donald Trump?"
BOOKER: "There is something seriously wrong when mendacity is the norm. When law-abiding citizens are feared of leaving their home. This is a toxic environment being created right now. And I don’t care who you are, if you consider yourself a leader, you have an obligation to stand up and do something about it and lead with love and not appealing to people’s darker angels or appealing to or exploiting that fear."
