Sanders Says Trump Is ‘Getting Nervous’
Sen. Bernie Sanders responded to criticisms from Donald Trump about his campaigns failure to capitalize on Hillary Clinton’s shortcomings by pointing out that Trump is getting nervous that voters are catching on to his true intentions.
“It appears that Mr. Trump is getting nervous that working families are catching on that his policies represent the interests of the billionaire class against almost everyone else. He refuses to support raising the minimum wage,” Sanders said in a statement. “He believes wages are too high and he wants to provide hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the very richest families in America. That’s not an agenda that ‘makes America great.’”
The Hill reports:
At a November primary debate, Trump was asked about whether he supported raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.
“Taxes too high, wages too high,” he responded. “We’re not going to be able to compete against the world. I hate to say it, but we have to leave it the way it is.”
Trump said days later than he was referring only to what would happen if the minimum wage was raised.
