Sen. Sanders is on the record praising communist leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro, on account of a literacy program launched by the Cuban government, which Sen. Sanders says merits praise. When pressed by Baier about his recent comments praising authoritarian dictator Fidel Castro, which received an abundance of justified backlash, Sen. Sanders doubled down. 

When asked if he has any regrets about his sentiments about Castro, Sen. Sanders said “no:”

When reminded of his Democratic colleagues rightfully condemning his favorable view of Castro, Sen. Sanders claimed that criticism is another effort of the Democratic establishment to undermine him:

“We’ve got a lot of Democrats who are attacking me, you know that. Nothing new there,” Sen. Sanders said.
