Senator Bernie Sanders believes that based off of President Donald Trump's actions and words, he is irrevocably delusional. Sander's told Erin Burnett on CNN's "OutFront," "I use the term ‘delusional' with regard to Trump when he said there were 3 to 5 million ‘illegals' who voted in the last election… That is delusional. Nobody in the world believes that is the case. There is zero evidence to back it up. But he makes that statement.
