Sen. Cory Booker compares Trump 'spouting racism' to segregationists George Wallace and Bull Connor

Cory Booker began the Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday night by accusing President Trump of “using the tired, old language of demagogues, of fearmongers, of racists, to try to divide our country.” In an interview with Yahoo News, the New Jersey senator explained why he thinks Trump’s remarks are “deeply disturbing” and compared the strategy of “spouting racism” to the infamous segregationists George Wallace and Bull Connor.
