Bernie Sanders Tells Supporters To Knock Off The Violence


Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) asked his supporters not to engage in violence in response to anti-Trump mobs attacking Donald Trump supporters as they left his rally in California last week..

Sanders said, “Any person who is a Bernie Sanders supporter, please, do not in any way, shape or form engage in violence.”

Partial transcript as follows:

TAPPER: I want to ask you about some of the violence we’ve seen by anti-Trump protesters against supporters of Trump. Some of these people who have been very violent have been seen with your signs, Bernie Sanders signs, chanting your name. Do you condemn the violence?

SANDERS: I condemn it, absolutely. And let’s be very clear: We have millions and millions of people who are supporting us, and I want to make it clear that any person who is a Bernie Sanders supporter, please, do not in any way, shape or form engage in violence. That is absolutely not what this campaign is about.
