Zach Berg and Andy Davis in the Iowa City Press-Citizen:

“Bernie Sanders came out swinging at President Donald Trump Thursday night in Iowa City.

“’Mr. President, there are no nice Nazis,’” Sanders said to a crowd that roared and applauded in approval.

“Sanders went on to denounce Trump’s consideration of getting rid of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, a program that gave deportation protections to nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants that arrived in the country as children.

 “‘It’s shameful, it’s disgraceful, and together we have to do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen,'” Sanders said.

“He also addressed Trump’s plan to deny transgender people the right to serve in the U.S. military. “‘Our job is to stand with the transgender community and to fight all forms of homophobia.'”
