The Vermon senator’s statement arrived significantly later than other candidates
Americans woke up to news of tragic terror attacks in Brussels and heard four of the five remaining presidential candidates speak out. Bernie Sanders, however, was silent until almost seven hours after news of the attacks broke.
“We offer our deepest condolences to the families who lost loved ones in this barbaric attack and to the people of Brussels,” Sanders said in a statement released at 11:35 a.m. ET.
Donald Trump, John Kasich, Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton have already issued statements and appeared on morning shows.
In fact, all three GOP candidates spoke to Fox Business Network before Sanders chimed in.
