Bernie Sanders Won’t Call Donald Trump A Legitimate President

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) said on NBC’s Meet The Press this week that he did not think Donald Trump is a legitimate president because of Russian interference, a claim that has since been supported by other Democrats including Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) if he shared Lewis’ view that Trump is not a legitimate president. Sanders dodged Stephanopoulos’ question three times, never once saying if he thought that Donald Trump is a legitimate president.

Sanders did say, however, he does believe that the Russian government did interfere with the election to help Trump get elected.
