Sanders: Trump Has ‘Fondness’ for Authoritarians – Possibly Has ‘Financial Dealings’ in Saudi Arabia


On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated that President Trump has “great fondness for authoritarian-type leaders around the world,” and possibly has financial dealings in Saudi Arabia.

Sanders said, “I think the president, sadly enough, has a great fondness for authoritarian-type leaders around the world, whether it’s Putin in Russia, or Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia, or other authoritarian leaders. Second of all, it is possible that the president himself, through Trump enterprises, may have some financial dealings in Saudi Arabia.”
