'I hope he loses': Bernie on Bibi

US senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had some harsh words for Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.

"When election time comes in Israel, he always tries going even further to the right by appealing to racism within Israel, I think it's unfortunate," Sanders said at a campaign rally for the Vermont senator.

"I'm not a great fan of his, and, frankly, I hope he loses his election," he added.
