Sanders reacts to Trump rally chants

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday called Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar a leader with "strength and courage," and said she won’t back down from President Trump’s messages of racism.

Sanders posted on Instagram his reaction to supporters of Trump chanting "send her back" at a rally in North Carolina. He says he was with Omar and was surprised at how unfazed she was.

Sanders also asked supporters to split contributions they would have made to his re-election campaign with Omar's re-election campaign.
