Sanders is running for a second time for the Democratic presidential nomination, The independent
“It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we have a president today who is a racist, who is a sexist, who is a homophobe, who is a xenophobe, and who is a religious bigot. I wish I did not have to say that. But that is the damn truth,” from Vermont said on Friday.
“During Donald Trump’s presidency we have seen a sharp rise in hate crimes and that rise comes as this country continues to be plagued by institutional racism and racial inequality,” Sanders stressed.
At the end of his appearance, Sanders voiced support for studying the possibility of reparations for descendants of slaves.
When the independent senator from Vermont was asked if he as president would sign a bill into law currently in the House of Representatives that would study and consider reparation payments,
Sanders answered, “of course I would sign it.”
“There needs to be a study,” he added.
But Sanders quickly pointed out that “what I think we need to do… is to pay real attention to the most distressed communities in America. We’ve got to use ten percent of all federal funds to make sure that kids who need it get the education, get the jobs, get the environmental protection that they need.”
