Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called Bernie Sanders a “maniac” and a “socialist-slash-communist” at a campaign rally in Virginia Wednesday night.
“I watched [the Democratic debate] last night as Hillary and Bernie Sanders, they just couldn’t give things away fast enough,” Trump said. “And they’re giving them to illegal immigrants. They want health care for illegal immigrants. They want driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants.”
Trump blasted Clinton, “I watched Hillary last night with, ‘we’re gonna give this, we’re gonna give that, we’re going to give that.’ The poor woman. She’s gotta 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.”
“She’s standing there listening to this guy, he’s gonna tax you people at 90 percent. He’s going to take everything! And nobody’s heard the term ‘communist.’ But you know what, I call him a socialist-slash-communist, OK, because that’s what he is. So then you see her stand up, now it’s her turn, and she goes, ‘Oh, I’m going to do that too, I’m going to do that too, I’m going to do that.’ Because she’s got to win, because she’s not doing too well, and in a head-to-head poll — they just did that, I beat her by five or six points. I love it, I love it.”
