Sen. Bernie Sanders explained why he thinks Hillary Clinton lost and why Donald Trump won in this interview earlier this week.
Saying to NPR’s Morning Edition, it was due to the fact that they are out of touch with their country, “I happen to believe that the Democratic Party has been not doing a good job in terms of communicating with people in cities, in towns and in rural America, all over this country.”
And for Trump, Sanders said, “Either he can have the courage and get up in front of the American people, or do it through a Tweet, and say, ‘You know what? Hey, I was just kidding. I was really lying.’” Or something like this, “And I look forward to Trump telling the American people that that is what he intends to do.”
Sanders along with a group of Democratic leaders are calling for a “Day of Action” on January 15. Their goal is “to vigorously oppose the Republican plan to end Medicare as we know it and throw our health care system into chaos.”
“Millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump after he promised not to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. He must be held to his promises and should veto any legislation which cuts these vital and necessary health programs.”
Do you agree with Bernie?
