Self-described Democratic-Socialist Bernie Sanders believes he can win over supporters of President Trump during the 2020 race for the White House; saying Monday night that many in the country are seeing “their standard of living going down.”
“I’m not going to say that within Trump’s camp there aren’t some people who are racists and sexists. There are. We have seen that. But I don’t believe that is the case for most of those folks,” Sanders said.
“Many of these people are people that worked hard their entire lives and their standard of living is going down. In many cases, they’re making less today than they did 30 or 40 years ago,” he added.
