Bernie Sanders Announces 2020 Presidential Bid: Trump ‘Is a Racist, Xenophobe, Homophobe’

‘I think the current occupant of the White House is an embarrassment to our country’


TRUMP: “First of all, I wanted to let the people of the state of Vermont know about this first. What I promise to do is, as I go around the country, is to take the values that all of us in Vermont are proud of, belief in justice, in community, in grassroots politics, town meetings, that’s what I’m going to carry all over this country. I think the current occupant of the White House is an embarrassment to our country. I think he is a pathological liar. Every day he is telling one lie after another. It gives me no pleasure to say that, but I also think he is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe, somebody who is gaining cheap political points by trying to pick on minorities and often undocumented immigrants. And I cannot recall certainly in my lifetime or modern history that we had a president who actually goes out of his way to try to divide the American people up based on where we were born or the color of our skin our gender, whatever it may be. So, you know, I think what a president has to do is bring our people together, not divide us up. That’s certainly one reason I’m running. The second reason is we began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign and now it’s time to move that revolution forward and make sure that that vision, those ideas are implemented into policy.”
