Sen. Bernie Sanders entered the 2020 race on Tuesday, and President Donald Trump told reporters that the Vermont independent may have “lost his opportunity” after losing to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“Good luck, Bernie. The outcome will be intriguing to see, remarked Trump in the Oval Office.
Tuesday morning, Sanders made his candidacy announcement. Trump asserted that Sanders will support him on trade despite professing a democratic socialist worldview, which the GOP has demonized.
The Vermont senator supports a trade protectionist agenda, much like Trump. Additionally, he was perceived as pushing Hillary Clinton to the left on trade issues in 2016, which led to her dropping her support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.
Trump asserted on Tuesday, however—presumably about his trade conflict with China and renegotiation of NAFTA—that Sanders would not have been able to put his protectionism into policy the way Trump has.
Trump told reporters, ” think he missed his moment.” “But Bernie is one that you know on trade, and I kind of agree with him on trade,” I said. On trade, I’m being really strict. He was stern with traders. He doesn’t know what to do about it, which is the problem.
He continued, “We’re accomplishing something extremely amazing on trade.”
The White House has tried to link Sanders’ progressive philosophies to the other Democrats running for president in 2020, portraying Sanders’ more mainstream policies like “Medicare for All” and raising taxes on the wealthy as radical and unrealistic, even though they have caused some rifts among 2020 Democrats.
Trump again reverted to a common criticism of Clinton, asserting that the Democratic Party and Clinton’s campaign treated Sanders unfairly during the 2016 race.
“I believe that Bernie’s experience may not have been pleasant. I believe that he was duped. Four years ago, he ran well, the man claimed. And it was unfortunate that Clinton did not treat him with respect.
According to the president and Sanders, the Democratic National Committee improperly tipped the election in Clinton’s favor. This accusation was confirmed in 2016 when the DNC released damaging emails. Tuesday, Trump brought the allegations back.
About our country, I think what happened to Bernie Sanders four years ago was pretty tragic, the man stated.
Sanders hasn’t been as complimentary of the president.
Sanders said Tuesday morning after announcing his candidacy, “I think Donald Trump must be defeated because I think it is unacceptable and un-American, to be honest with you, that we have a president who is a pathological liar. It gives me no pleasure to say that, but it’s true. “We have a president who is racist, sexist, and xenophobic, who is trying to divide us up in a way that no president in our lifetime has ever come close to doing.”
