Bernie Sanders Printed Out a Donald Trump Tweet for Senate Meeting

Highlight Story

Donald Trump was an atypical candidate for the Republican party, to say the least, in part because he advocated against cuts to programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. The goal was noble: to attempt to hold the president-elect to his campaign promise not to touch Medicare, Social Security, or Medicaid.

Sanders' floor speech came as Senators debated a budget resolution that lays the groundwork for repeal of the Affordable Care Act, the contentious health care law also known as Obamacare.

Many Americans have grown accustomed to rash tweets or statements from President-elect Donald Trump, only to find him backtracking or flat-out lying about having made them in the first place.

"There's a lot of responsibly on Mr. Trump's shoulders", Sanders said.

While the topics up for discussion were quite serious, Sanders' deputy communications director did note in a Twitter post that Senator Ted Cruz got a chuckle out of the giant tweet. Yesterday, he planned to speak about changes the incoming Republican President Trump plans to make to Obamacare - the Senate is considering a repeal of Obamacare - the U.S. healthcare plan.

During his time on the floor, Sanders said Trump's promises on the campaign trail must be given attention. "But if that is not what the case is, if he was honest, then I would hope that tomorrow or maybe today he could send out a tweet and tell his Republican colleagues to stop wasting their time and all of our time". Sanders believes Trump either needs to go against the Republicans who want to cut those programs, or he needs to admit to the American people that he's a liar.
