Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 White House candidate, said Sunday that he believes President Trump “creates the climate” for events like last weekend’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, but that he does not believe Trump wants “to see somebody get shot.”

“I think that what [Trump] has created in this country with his incredible rhetoric, his racist rhetoric where he calls Mexicans rapists and criminals, where he almost condones in a rally when someone was attacking somebody … he creates a climate where we are seeing a significant increase in hate crimes in this country,” Sanders said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“He is creating the kind of divisiveness in this nation that is the last thing that we should be doing,” Sanders added. “He creates the climate, but do I think that he wants to see somebody get shot? Absolutely not.”
