Just 24 hours after the first Democratic debate, Donald Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters and gave his thoughts on what the candidates said. In addition to his usual criticism of Hillary Clinton, Trump went hard after progressive favorite, Sen.  Sanders.

Ever since announcing his presidential campaign back in June, the billionaire real estate mogul has vaulted to the top of the Republican primary field. Despite making controversial comments about Hispanics, women, and other minority groups, the conservative base of the party continue to support the former host of “The Apprentice.” During an Oct. 14 campaign rally in Richmond, Virginia, Trump went on the attack.

“I watched last night as Hillary and Bernie Sanders, they just couldn’t give away things fast enough,” Trump told the crowd. The Republican front runner had the crowd on their feet booing the Democratic candidates as he pointed out the “free stuff” they wanted to give to the American people. “They want heath care for illegal immigrants. They want drivers licenses for illegal immigrants,” Trump said, noting that, “They want, listen to this, social security for illegal immigrants.”

Trump then showed some sympathy for Clinton, referring to her as a “poor women,” citing the fact that she was forced to “give everything away” when standing next to Bernie Sanders. “The poor woman, she’s gotta give everything away because this maniac that was standing on her right was giving everything away, so she’s following! That’s what’s happening.”

Continuing his attack on Sanders, Trump referred to the Vermont senator as a “socialist” and a “communist.” “This socialist-slash-communist, okay? Nobody wants to say it,” Trump said as the crowd cheered. Warning his supporters, if Sanders is elected, they should expect to have their taxes raised to 90 percent.

Despite the charges of “socialism,” Sanders has spoken about using tax money to invest in rebuilding the country’s infrastructure, universal healthcare, and offer paid family leave, all programs that are prevalent in most industrialized nations around the world. Trump told the Virginia crowd that their taxes would be raised to 90 percent, a number that Sanders hasn’t ever said, but those who would see their taxes increased would be the wealthiest people and corporations in the country. A group that most likely didn’t attend Trump’s campaign rally.
