Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wouldn’t say whether he believes Democrats can retake the House in 2018, during an interview on Wednesday, but did say that “some Trump supporters are racists, are sexist, are homophobes.”

The Washington Post’s James Hohmann asked Sanders if he thinks Democrats can retake the House in 2018.

“I have been to almost, I think, 30 states in the country, most of them states that Trump won,” Sanders said. “Because I think it’s important to talk to Trump supporters.”

Sanders then told Hohmann that “some Trump supporters are racists, are sexist, are homophobes. No question about it. I don’t think the majority of them are.”

“I think these are people who in many cases – who feel the establishment has ignored them and, you know what, the establishment has ignored them, both political parties,” Sanders said. “Let’s talk about policies that can improve life for you and your families. Don’t let Trump divide us up by the color of our skin or where we were born.”
