Sanders On Trump: I Never Even Went To One Of His Weddings
Senator Bernie Sanders, who promised not to go negative in his campaign, has made an exception Saturday, taking a swipe both at Donald Trump and his opponent Hillary Clinton.
“Let me say a word to you about my good friend Donald Trump, just kidding, he’s not my good friend. In fact, I never even went to one of his weddings,” Sanders said according to The New York Times.
“The truth is that Donald Trump is a pathological liar…. People can disagree about ideas, but you cannot have a president who the American people cannot trust when he speaks,” he added.
The Hill reports:
Throughout the campaign, Sanders has promised not to make any negative attacks on other candidates. But the Vermont senator on Friday said he was “making an exception” because of the danger that Trump poses….
Sanders also highlighted several polls that indicate that he would do better in a general election against Trump than Clinton would.
According to a Real Clear Politics average of polls, Clinton beats the business mogul in a general election matchup by about six points, while Sanders comes out ahead by 10.
But Sanders faces much more daunting challenges in the primary, trailing Clinton by over 300 delegates. He lost five state primaries to the former secretary of State last week.
