NEW YORK - US liberal groups, divided in their support of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, have urged a united, active opposition to Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner.

In an open letter released on Tuesday, a group of liberal organizations called for a "non-violent movement" to thwart Trump's candidacy for November's general election, calling the New York billionaire a "hate-peddling bigot who openly incites violence."

"This is a five-alarm fire for our democracy," said the letter, which was signed by the leaders of the liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org, a supporter of Sanders, and the Service Employees International Union, a major labor union that is backing Clinton.

Representatives of 20 other groups signed the letter, which was published online as Americans in five states voted in the latest round of primary contests to pick party nominees for the Nov. 8 election.
