MANCHESTER, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — In a virtual tie with Mayor Pete Buttigieg as the top Democratic presidential candidate out of the Iowa Caucuses, Sen. Bernie Sanders is now on the campaign trail in New Hampshire.
Speaking at the iconic Politics and Eggs at St. Anselm College in Manchester, the Vermont senator took several jabs at President Donald Trump.
"Right now, you have a billionaire president who is a pathological liar, corrupt, who is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe," Sanders said. "Many of these corporations, not unhappy with him—he gave them huge tax breaks!"
He challenged Trump on the economy.
"The top one percent owns more wealth than the bottom 92 percent," he said. "At the same time, tonight, over 500,000 Americans will be homeless, sleeping out on the streets or in shelters, including 30,000 veterans."

But Sanders also set himself apart from his Democratic rivals, saying it was his campaign that has taken no special interest money.
Sanders said Buttigieg has raised the most campaign money from billionaires.
