Clinton Campaign Retweets Sanders Campaign's Tweet Bashing Trump

Social media harmony in the Democratic primary.

Posted on

OKLAHOMA CITY — Moments before Bernie Sanders stepped on stage to address a large crowd at the ​Cox Convention Center Arena here Sunday, his campaign account tweeted about Donald Trump and the Ku Klux Klan.

Trump declined to condemn the KKK in a CNN interview earlier in the day, and the Sanders campaign — which has stepped up its attacks on Trump in recent days — took the opportunity to knock him again.

America's first black president cannot and will not be succeeded by a hatemonger who refuses to condemn the KKK.

The Clinton campaign declined to comment on the retweet.

Clinton addressed Trump's Sunday interview at a campaign stop in Nashville.

Hillary Clinton's response to Trump's David Duke comments: "oh, that's pathetic." (In response to actor Tony Goldwyn's mention of them.)
