Another endorsement has gotten Bernie Sanders in trouble.
In an earlier statement, a Sanders aide said: “The goal of our campaign is to build a multiracial, multi-generational movement large enough to defeat Donald Trump and the powerful special interests whose greed and corruption is the root cause of the outrageous inequality in America.
“Sharing a big tent requires including those who do not share every one of our beliefs, while always making clear that we will never compromise our values.
“The truth is that by standing together in solidarity, we share the values of love and respect that will move us in the direction of a more humane, more equal world.”
