Bernie Sanders found himself at the receiving end of Donald Trump's Twitter vitriol. Sanders came back with his own verbal lashing.
After all was said and done, many seemed to be wondering... is this September 2017 or 2016?
During an interview on SiriusXM Progress, Sanders said:
Where can we begin on that? Mr. President, let me tell you what a curse on the American people is, and that is your support for legislation that would throw 23 million people off the health care they currently have, and then provide huge tax breaks for the rich and large corporations.
Providing health care to every man, woman, and child in this country ― that’s not a curse. That is what every other major country on earth does and that is exactly what we should be doing.
Sanders also called Trump “the most destructive president” in modern history, particularly regarding his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, putting an estimated 800,000 immigrant youth at risk of deportation.
Sanders went on to say :
Of all of the terrible things that he has done and proposes to do, the cruelest and most ugly action was the doing away with the legal status of 800,000 young people under the DACA program. To my mind we have got to do everything we can to restore legal status to those young people.
We’ve got to move forward to protect not only them but their parents. I would hope ― I would hope ― that maybe Trump understands the revulsion that’s taking place all across this country, whether you’re Democrat, Republican or independent, at what he did. And maybe he’s trying to find a way out of it. And if that’s the case, that’s a good thing.
The President insists that Sanders' plan for a single payer system would destroy the country.
