Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has weighed in on the first Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night. Speaking in Virginia Wednesday, Trump called Vermont senator and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders a “communist” and a “maniac.”
Donald Trump: “I watched Hillary last night with ’We’re going to give this, we’re going to give that, we’re going to give that.’ She — the poor woman! She’s got to give everything away, because this maniac, that was standing on her right, is giving everything away, so she’s following. That’s what’s happening. This socialist-slash-communist, OK? Nobody wants to say it.”
Trump’s speech was interrupted by a group of immigrant rights protesters who unfurled a banner which read “No human life is illegal” and began shouting “Dump Trump.” A Trump supporter reportedly spit on one of the protesters.
