Bernie Sanders' Perfect Response to Donald Trump's Call to Ban All Muslim Immigration

On Monday afternoon, Donald Trump upped his xenophobia game, issuing a statement demanding an immediate halt to all Muslim immigration to the United States. 


“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” he said in a statement.

A Trump spokesperson gave "death" as the reason for the statement, the New York Times reported. 

In a series of tweets, Senator Bernie Sanders swiftly rebutted Trump's call for discrimination based on religion.
