Sanders said this a “very dangerous moment in American history,” citing not only terrorists attacks but a struggling economy.
“You know what they are anxious about?” Sanders began. “They are working harder. They’re working more hours . . . and they are saying the rich are getting richer. They’re saying ‘I’m getting poorer. What are you going to do about it.’
“Then someone like Trump comes along,” Sanders continued, “saying we have to hate the Mexicans . . . we have to hate the Muslims. . . . Meanwhile the rich get richer.” Sanders said Americans shouldn’t let Trump and others “divide us by race.”
