ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told CBS's Face the Nation that "he does not condone violence," while blaming supporters of Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders for the discord that forced him to cancel a Chicago rally and overshadowed his campaign appearances on Saturday. Trump said if his supporters "ever went to Bernie's rallies and did the same thing, I want to tell you, you would be so angry with me." "Nobody talks about it, but you would be so against me," Trump said.

"So, you know, we have two standards in this country. It's very unfortunate. The press is extremely dishonest," he said.
