Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, on Tuesday slammed President Trump over his response to the violence in Charlottesville, VA, saying “there are no nice Nazis!”
“We have a president who was equivocal — nice people on both sides!” Sanders said during a town hall event in Detroit MI.
“No! There are no nice Nazis!”
Trump defended his response to the violence in Charlottesville during a rally in Phoenix, AZ Tuesday evening. He said the media misrepresented his comments and he had clearly condemned White Nationalists.
Sanders on Tuesday said Trump’s comments give Democrats an opportunity to win the White House in 2020 and win the House again.
“I want Democrats to open the door,” Sanders said.
“I want Democrats to be the party not of corporate interests, but of the working class.”
