It’s Clear By Now That the Second-Most Powerful Person in the Federal Government Will Be Bernie Sanders.
The Big Question Is, Who is the MOST Powerful Person: Paul Ryan or Donald Trump?
“I think my title [of head of outreach] is to be head of outreach and that’s something that I take very seriously,” he said, without explaining any more about the new role.
But Sanders did pound home his remedies for the Democratic Party.
“We need major, major reforms to the Democratic Party,” Sanders said going on to say that Trump was able to tap into discontent among Americans who felt completely ignored by the rest of the American political system.
Trump, Sanders continued, “said I hear that you are hurting and I hear and understand that you’re worried about the future, about your kids, and I alone can do something about it — and people voted for him.”
Sanders went on to tick off the promises Trump made that Democrats would hold him accountable for.
“He said we will not cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Now I think that we should expand Social Security,” Sanders continued. “That is what he said, and pay attention to see what he now does. The question that will be resolved pretty quickly is whether or not everything that he was saying to the working class of this country was hypocrisy, was dishonest or whether he was sincere — and we will find out soon enough.”
