When asked if he regretted defending Castro becuase of his "literacy program," Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said "no."
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."
