Sen. Bernie Sanders told his Sunday night Democratic audience in Flint, Mich., that being called a communist by Donald Trump was “one of the nicest things that he said about me.”
BREITBART reports that Sanders gave his answer to CNN debate host Anderson Cooper, when Cooper cited Trump’s criticism.
In October, for example, Trump described Sanders as a “socialist-slash-communist.” Trump also called Sanders a communist in early February at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “I’d love to run against him,” Trump said, “To run against a communist in this country … I’d love that.”
But Sanders embraced the criticism Sunday night, saying the description “was one of the nicest things that he said about me.” BREITBART
