Bernie about Trump:

But the thing that galls me the most is that he [Trump] is doing what no president in my memory has ever done, and that is quite intentionally, for cheap political gain, he is trying to divide the American people up based on the color of our skin, based on the country we come from, our religion, our sexual orientation, our gender.

Huh? I remember Trump being divisive towards Muslims (although primarily foreign), in which perhaps Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris might agree with him, and toward the media (fake news, enemy of the people, etc.), also not entirely baseless, but what are these other divisive attempts Bernie is talking about? Also, isn't identity politics, the way of thinking that divides people up on the grounds Bernie enumerated, an instrument of the left?
