Socialist Sanders Refuses to Call Venezuela’s Maduro a “Dictator”

Socialist presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) refused to call Venezuela’s disputed President Nicolás Maduro a “dictator,” insisting “there are still democratic operations taking place” in the embattled South American country.

Fox News points out that during a CNN town hall last night, Sanders was asked why he has “stopped short” of calling Maduro a “dictator.” The Senator replied, “I think it’s fair to say that the last election was undemocratic, but there are still democratic operations taking place in that country. The point is, what I’m calling for right now is internationally supervised fair elections.”

He quickly pivoted to criticizing President Trump, and even called him “authoritarian” for enacting a national emergency to build the wall along the southern border.
