The first question to Hillary Clinton was also about violence at Donald Trump’s rallies. Here is what she had to say:
“All Americans should be concerned,” she said. “Donald Trump is running a very cynical campaign, pitting groups against one another, trafficking in hate and fear. He actually incites violence in the way he urges the audience on.”
She pointed to how he said he wanted to punch a protester and offered to pay legal bills for supporters who get arrested fighting back protesters.
“We have to reject this,” she said.
Clinton, like Sanders, dismissed Trump’s claim that violence was caused by her supporters.
“Donald Trump is responsible for what happens at his rallies,” she said.

“That has got to end,” Sanders said when a Black woman, who recently lost her brother to police violence, asked him what he would do create a zero policy against police violence.
“Police officers who break the law must be held accountable,” he added, saying the Department of Justice will investigate every death of civilians who die in police custody.
Further, he said that the nation needs a model police department where lethal force would be the last response, not the first response. He also argued that police departments should reflect the communities they serve.

When CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders about violence at Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s rallies, he said, “Donald Trump is a pathological liar.”
