Sanders Rejects Trump’s Rhetoric; Calls for Unity

Sen. Bernie Sanders alleged Friday that Donald Trump is “trying to play on fears and divide us up,” The Hill reported.

“We must bring people together to take on the powerful who’ve hurt the middle class,” the Democratic presidential candidate tweeted. “I believe we stand together to address the real issues facing this country, not allow them to divide us by race or where we come from.”

Sanders was reacting to Trump’s string of bigoted remarks targeting women, Muslims, Mexicans, disabled people and others. He urged voters to reject the incendiary rhetoric.

The Hill noted that Trump also is continuing to criticize his rivals for the Republican nomination. One of his favorite targets has been Jeb Bush, whose single-digit poll numbers place him behind at least four other GOP White House hopefuls. During the Christmas holiday, Trump ridiculed the former Florida governor for failing despite having spent more money on advertising than any other candidate.

The billionaire businessman has led the race for more than six months though Ted Cruz is gaining on him. The Texas senator appears to be on the verge of winning Iowa’s Feb. 1 caucuses. Trump is the front-runner in the first two primary states, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Sanders, meanwhile, is threatening to upset Clinton in New Hampshire. His poll numbers have been improving in Iowa, as well. During the weekend, the senator pointed out that he and Trump have one thing in common: their appeal to angry and disillusioned voters who want an outsider as president.
