Democratic presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) refused to address socialism's impact on Latin America during a recent interview with the Spanish-language Univision.

As first reported by Newsbusters, Sanders was asked by Univision's Leon Krauze to explain how socialism has failed the governments of Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela. Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, refused to comment, instead saying he was focused on his own presidential campaign in the U.S.

"I am very interested, but right now I'm running for President of the United States," Sanders said.

Krauze pressed the presidential candidate and asked if he had an opinion on the dire situation in Venezuela.

"Of course I have an opinion, but as I said, I'm focused on my campaign," Sanders responded.
