Bernie Sanders spoke to the press about the Orlando shooter, gun regulations, and the future of the Democratic party earlier today.

He emphatically rejected Donald's condemnation of all Muslims as the problem.

"Muslim people did not commit this horrific act," Sanders thundered. "A man named Omar Mateen did. To blame an entire religion for the acts of a single individual is nothing less than bigotry, and that is not what this country is supposed to be about."

He continued, "Our goal as a nation must be to bring people together, to prevent violence, to prevent hatred, and to create the nation that we know standing together we can create."

Our goal must not to be to allow politicians -- Donald Trump or anyone else -- to divide us up based on where our family came from, the color of our skin, or our religion," he declared.

He went on to discuss destroying ISIS, and their barbarism.

After concluding his remarks on Orlando, Sanders turned to the Democratic Party reforms he wants to see implemented.
