President Trump lashed out again at the "failing" New York Times on Twitter over what he called a "racism witch hunt." Said Trump: "Journalism' has reached a new low in the history of our Country. It is nothing more than an evil propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke." He added: "With all that this Administration has accomplished, think what my Poll Numbers would be if we had an honest Media, which we do not."
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders told a group of people Saturday that if elected president in 2020, he will "go to war" with white nationalism and racism. Sanders said he would use every tool at his disposal, including executive orders. Speaking to a crowd of mostly African Americans at the Young Leaders Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, Sanders described his family background as being Jewish and from Poland. "My father's whole family was wiped out by Hitler and his white nationalism," said Sanders, who is one of many Democratic presidential hopefuls in 2020. "Too many people have fought over the years, too many people have died against racism to let it resurface and flourish in America." Then he made his declaration. "We will go to war against white nationalism and racism in every aspect of our lives," he said.
