Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders went after his Republican rival Donald Trump on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Tuesday night, lambasting the real estate mogul as a “demagogue.”
“Throughout history, you’ve had demagogues trying to divert attention away from the real issues,” Sanders said. “And what someone like Trump is trying to do is divide us up. A few months ago, we were supposed to hate Mexicans that he thinks are all criminals and rapists. Now, we are supposed to hate Muslims. And that kind of crap is not going to work in the United States of America.”
“I think what the American people understand is that given the problems that we face, we’ve got to stand together, come together, and create a decent life for all of our people and stop this scapegoating of one group or another,” Sanders continued.
