Sanders Calls Trump A ‘Coward’ For Campaign Tactics

Donald Trump’s attempt to drive down voter turnout for Hillary Clinton has outraged the Democratic presidential nominee’s former opponent.

The Hill reported that Bernie Sanders, who competed with Clinton in the primaries, was quick to respond this week when a Trump spokesman told Bloomberg Businessweek that the Republican’s campaign had “three major voter-suppression drives under way.”

The Vermont senator tweeted: “Anybody who is suppressing the vote because they know that those people will vote against them is a political coward.”

According to The Hill, Trump’s aides are attempting to reduce the number of ballots cast by white liberals, young women and African-Americans. Polls indicate that the three demographic groups are clearly in Clinton’s camp.

One of the Republican campaign’s tactics is to remind people that Clinton formerly supported the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership, a international trade agreement that she now claims to oppose. A Trump adviser said the goal is to discourage “idealistic” voters who favored Sanders from casting ballots. Another strategy is to drive young women away from the Democratic nominee by showcasing those who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual abuse.

None of the campaign operations is against the law, according to The Hill.
