Fox & Friends” attempted to defend Donald Trump’s Baltimore comments on Monday by comparing the president’s tweets to a quote made by Senator Bernie Sanders in 2015.

Sanders, who was in Baltimore at the time, said:

“Anyone took the walk we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think you were in a third world country.”

Trump took to Twitter on Monday, calling Bernie “crazy.”
