Bernie Sanders is the latest presidential candidate to blast Donald Trump’s controversial plan to ban Muslims from entering the United States.

“A few months ago we were supposed to hate Mexicans and he thinks they’re all criminals or rapists and now we’re supposed to hate Muslims. That
kind of crap is not going to work in the United States of America,” said Sanders.

Trump’s plan is having the rare effect of uniting democrats and republicans on the campaign trail.

Defending himself to ABC’s Barbara Walters, Trump isn’t backing down.

When asked if he would consider himself a “bigot” Trump said, “Not at all. Probably the least of anyone you’ve ever met… I’m a person that has common sense. I’m a smart person, I know how to run things. I know how to make America great again.”
