FLAGSTAFF, AZ — At a rally here Thursday night, Bernie Sanders took aim at one of Donald Trump’s most prominent supporters.
“It’s easy for bullies like Sheriff Arpaio to pick on people who have no power,” Sanders said of Maricopa County’s controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a Trump backer the billionaire frequently references in his stump speech. “If I am elected president, the president of the United States does have power. So watch out, Joe.”
Twelve-year-old Katherine Bueno introduced Sanders with tears in her eyes. She told the story of watching the TV as her father was deported and said that those images come back to her everyday.
“I want all deportations to stop,” she said. “That is why we need Bernie Sanders to be our President.”
