Trump: Sanders Is a ‘Maniac’
Donald Trump’s latest target is Bernie Sanders. Following a recent speech, he called Sanders a “maniac.”
“[Sanders is] a socialist-slash-communist,” he said in Richmond, Va., according to The Associated Press. “[He is] a maniac.”
Trump then argued that Sanders’s philosophy is dragging the rest of the Democratic presidential contenders to the left.
“She’s got to give everything away because this maniac that was standing on her right is giving everything away, so she’s following,” he said of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
“We have to be careful,” he added.
The Hill reports:
Trump also slammed Sanders and the other Democratic candidates for not challenging Clinton during the Tuesday night debate.
“There was no attack,” Trump said of the debate’s overall treatment of former first lady.
Trump additionally released an online ad Wednesday that implies Sanders is too meek for the presidency.
“The world is a dangerous place,” it says over images of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria terrorists. “We need a tough, strong leader.”
“And it’s not this guy,” the ad concludes, showing Sanders struggling with Black Lives Matter demonstrators who disrupted his campaign events earlier this summer.
