"What somebody like a Trump is trying to do is divide us up. A few months ago, we were supposed to hate Mexicans. Now, we are supposed to hate Muslims. And that kind of crap is not going to work in the United States of America," Sanders said. 

Although, Sanders pointed out that to beat Trump, he will also have to beat his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. (Video via Hillary for America)

And that could be a challenge. Recent polling data shows that Clinton has about a 2-to-1 lead over Sanders.
