On Tuesday evening, Bernie Sanders returned to late-night television for a notably somber conversation with Jimmy Kimmel. During the interview, Sanders discussed his relationship with Hillary Clinton, the extremely long election process, and the devastating attacks in Brussels.

Sanders used the attacks to condemn his Republican counterparts for wanting to make the United States’ response to the attacks an indictment of every Muslim.

“At the end of the day, we cannot allow the Trumps of the world to use these incidents to attack all of the Muslim people in the world,” he said of the terrorist attacks. “That is unfair—to imply that because someone is a Muslim they are a terrorist, that is an outrageous statement, equally so when he talks about Mexicans coming over the border as rapists or criminals. That is not what this country is about.”
