Presidential candidates are weighing in on this week's protests and resignations at the University of Missouri:
Donald Trump told Fox, of the resignations, "I think it's disgusting. I think the two people that resigned are weak, ineffective people. … I think that when they resigned, they set something in motion that's going to be a disaster for the next long period of time."
On another Fox show, Ben Carson said Missouri students were engaged in "infantile behavior," adding that "we're being a little bit too tolerant, I guess you might say, accepting infantile behavior. I don't care which side it comes from. To say that I have the right to violate your civil rights because you're offending me is un-American."
Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton made their remarks on Twitter, with Clinton retweeting the comments of an aide.
I'm listening to the #BlackOnCampus conversation. It's time to address structural racism on college campuses.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) November 12, 2015
Racism has no place anywhere, let alone an institution of learning. Standing w/ the students at Mizzou in my home state calling for change.— Marlon Marshall (@MarlonDMarshall) November 12, 2015
