Returning presidential candidate Bernie Sanders isn’t happy that President Trump has opened up diplomatic relations with North Korea and Kim Jong Un and, apparently, “other authoritarian leaders all over the world.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks in Rollinsford, NH: "We don't need to be praising Kim Jong Un, or other authoritarian leaders all over the world who Trump is making good friends with. Okay?" pic.twitter.com/rwmZjirVOE

Sanders isn’t the Democratic candidate we’d say is strongest on the foreign policy front (Biden, maybe), and he’s been known to show a keen interest in authoritarian regimes.

Bernie honeymooned in the Soviet Union and actually said people standing in a bread line together awaiting their food rations is a good thing. WTF?

Says the guy who partied with Russians during the reign of Communism.

Says the twit who honeymooned in Russia, praising Communism, along with his praise of Castro's revolution when "the poor people were rising up against the ugly rich people". @SenSanders is truly a frightening person.

Really a hilarious comment from a man who honeymooned in Soviet Russia and praised Fidel Castro https://t.co/Qx4o8zAakN

This is rich coming from Bernie who praised the Sandinista's saying US media had not “reflected fairly the goals and accomplishments of your administration.”
Sanders even attended a Sandinista celebration where the crowd chanted, "Here, there, everywhere, the Yankee will die.” https://t.co/nmufD6hmPT

Like Bernie did with Stalin? Krushev? Chavez? Every other communist leader in his lifetime?

He certainly doesn’t back President Trump’s planned “coup” in Venezuela.
Good old Breadline Bernie, speaking out of his ass again.

Keep talking, Bernie.
Venezuelan president who praised Bernie Sanders’ revolutionary message will ration electricity https://t.co/6z98mYHesQ
