Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday derided Russell Vought, President Trump's nominee for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), over his past remarks on Islam.
Sanders specifically hit Vought's January 2016 article for The Resurgent, which was called "Wheaton College and the Preservation of Theological Clarity."
"Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology," Vought wrote. "They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son, and they stand condemned."
Vought's article was addressing a controversy over a Wheaton professor who said Christians and Muslims worship the same deity.
