Here's more, from the Washington Examiner

Bernie Sanders is standing by his previous comments defending Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

The Vermont senator told Bret Baier during a town hall Monday night hosted by Fox News that “no,” he doesn’t regret his comments praising Castro’s “literacy program.”

"Look, I have spent my entire life fighting for working people and fighting for democracy," Sanders said. "And Bret, if you check my record, I have condemned authoritarianism, whether it is in the Soviet Union, whether it's in Cuba, whether it is in Saudi Arabia."

The presidential candidate said back in February, “When Fidel Castro came to office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing, even though Fidel Castro did it?”
