Sen. Bernie Sanders hammered Donald Trump for being a gutless political coward who is afraid to run on his own ideas after it was reported that the Trump campaign is working to suppress the Democratic vote.
In response to the news that the Donald Trump campaign has three active operations going to suppress the vote, Sanders tweeted:
Anybody who is suppressing the vote because they know that those people will vote against them is a political coward. https://t.co/VFKmBOohXo

If you don’t have the guts to run for office on your ideas @realDonaldTrump, then you shouldn’t run for office at all.

Sen. Sanders was correct. Elections are supposed to be contests about ideas and visions for the future. However, the Republican Party ran out of ideas decades ago and has been on a slow and steady descent into substituting beliefs for facts, and hopes for visions.
Trump is trying to suppress the vote because voter suppression is the only tactic that he has left that may lead him to victory.
It takes guts and courage to run a presidential campaign based on ideas and principles. Donald Trump lacking in both the guts and courage departments which is why he is spending the final days of his presidential campaign trying to con and scheme his way into the Oval Office.
The media will never say it, but real candidates for office don’t try to win by discouraging people from voting. The best candidates get people excited to vote and play their vital role in the democratic process.
Bernie Sanders gets it. Donald Trump never will.
