Speaking at the National Action Network legislative conference, Sen. Bernie Sanders blasted President Trump, calling him a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe and a religious bigot, reports The Atlantic's Edward-Isaac Dovere.

"We have a president who is a racist, a president who is a sexist, a president who is a homophobe, and a president who is a xenophobe, and a president who is a religious bigot. It gives me no joy to tell you that. But it is the truth and we need to confront that."
