(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Tuesday that he has opposed authoritarianism all over the world, but he sees nothing wrong with acknowledging when dictators do something good.
During the CBS Democratic presidential debate Sanders was asked, “You’ve praised the Chinese communist party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country. You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua. Can Americans trust that a Democratic socialist president will not give authoritarians a free pass?”
Sanders was booed by the audience when he said that former President Barack Obama said that Cuba has made progress on education. more
