Booker Warns Trump Protesters: 'We Need to Raise Our Voices' But Do Not 'Indulge In Hate' (Video)

Senator Cory Booker speaks about the people protesting against Donald Trump, saying "So when you have a president that in his campaign who ran saying things that not aren't just contrary to fact but literally threatening to use presidential power in a way that would erode the rights and privileges and equality of large sections of Americans, God bless the protesters. But I will tell you this, I caution anyone who in their protest becomes the very thing that they’re protesting against. Meaning, turning to hateful speech, violating principles and ideals that are sacred in this country. We need to raise our voices, but we do not need to indulge in hate.” Booker furthers says about Democrats, "I'm not going to become what the other side (Republicans) in many ways did that I thought was despicable" such as heckling President Obama during the State of the Union address or questioning his birth, but says "we need to not lose our honor, we need to not lose our class in the way that we go about being a noble opposition."
