Bernie Sanders’ candidacy for president of the United States has been marked by extremism and policies which are simply not feasible. Time and time again, Sanders makes outrageous promises to his supporters, promises that he can’t keep and can’t attach a specific dollar amount or means of payment to.

From Medicare-for-All to Housing-for-All, free high-speed internet access, absolution from medical debt, absolution from student loan debt, etc., Sanders is all about increasing taxes and forcing government into the lives of the American people.

Whenever Sanders is challenged about the countless logistical errors and economic holes in his proposals, he simply claims that “bold change” is necessary for all. The 2020 Democrat doesn’t hesitate to partake in habitual wealth shaming and perpetuate the narrative that success and financial autonomy are things to be ashamed of.

Shortly before the Super Bowl, President Trump sat down for an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. During this interview, the president shared his outlook on Sanders and the proposals that he stands for. Washington Examiner reports Trump’s claims that Sanders is a communist, even worse than the socialist that many Americans believe the 2020 Democrat to be.

Reviewing Trump’s Outlook on Sanders

During the president’s interview with Hannity, the latter asked Trump to share the first words that come to him when hearing the names of 2020 Democrats. During the “lightning round” conversation, the president stated that when he thinks of Sanders, the word “communist” comes to mind.

Trump continued, explaining that he regards Sanders as “sort of” like a socialist, but also “far beyond” it. In wrapping up his statements about the 2020 Democrat, the president declared that at least Sanders is “true to what he believes.”

When asked about other Democrat candidates, such as Elizabeth Warren and Mike Bloomberg, Trump stated that words like “fairy tale,” “Pocahontas,” and “little” come to mind. The president also took aim at Bloomberg’s height, stating that the billionaire businessman would need to stand on a box at political debates in order to be as tall as other candidates.

Who Will Trump Face in the General Election?

At this time, Democrat candidates are still fighting amongst themselves with the hopes of winning their party’s nomination. The Iowa caucuses, which take place tonight, will serve as a significant factor in determining which candidate goes on to lose to President Trump. While Sanders is beating many of his rivals in Iowa polls, only time will tell the ultimate outcome of the caucuses.

Some Americans believe that the DNC will ultimately cheat Sanders out of winning the nomination, thus handing the reins over to Biden. With the approach of this evening’s caucuses has come more bickering between Sanders and Biden.
