Bernie Sanders Blasts Trump, But Still Offers Some Kind Words

Bernie Sanders has been very vocal about universal healthcare and has taken to Twitter to point out that fifteen years ago Trump was in favor of universal health care.

Speaking at a town hall in Washington sponsored by CNN and moderated by Chris Cuomo, Sanders blasted Republicans for acting "shamefully and outrageously" on the Garland nomination.

Sen. Bernie Sanders once called Donald Trump a "pathological liar", but at a forum at George Washington University in Washington, DC, the self-described socialist praised the president-elect's "extraordinary accomplishment" in winning the White House.

"We are dealing with a man who, in many respects is - how can I phrase this? - a pathological liar", Sanders said. And that is an extraordinary accomplishment. Anyanwu, a registered independent, voted for Hillary Clinton, but he had asked Sanders to provide a positive remark about Trump "in light of the efforts to inspire a cohesive front".

"Either Donald Trump lied to the American people", Sanders told his colleagues, "or he's got to say that he will veto any cuts to Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security".

"I think where Trump has ideas that make sense that we can work with him on, I think we should", said former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

When Barack Obama was elected president, the Republican Party pursued a strategy of relentless obstruction, opposing most things the new president proposed, regardless of merit. "No, I don't think that's what we do". "I believe we tell corporate America they've got to control their greed", he continued.

Regarding Republicans' plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act - known as Obamacare - Sanders said he hopes they have a solution. We will do everything that we can to ensure that he accomplishes as little as possible, and then we'll go to the American people and say, 'See, this guy didn't accomplish anything. "So I give Donald Trump his due". Sanders lost a close and contentious Democratic Primary that turned out to be basically rigged for Clinton as Wikileaks would exploit.
