Far-left Senator and potential Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders is now targeting Macy’s Department Store for their “$1 billion in profits,” claiming “Corporate America’s greed has got to end.”
“Macy’s made $1 billion in profits last year. Its CEO makes 580 times more than the median worker. Macy’s paid $0 in taxes in 2017. Now it’s laying off 2,000 hard-working employees to make more profits. Corporate America’s greed has got to end,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders found himself in hot-water earlier this month when FEC filing showed the candidate spending more on private jet travel than any other contender.
“The most recent filing from Sanders reveals $1,199,579 in spending during the final three months of 2019 to Apollo Jets, LLC, a ‘luxury private jet charter service.’ The campaign spent an additional $23,941 for transportation to Virginia-based Advanced Aviation Team,” reports the Washington Free Beacon.
“The candidate who comes closest to matching Sanders in private jet spending was former vice president Joe Biden, whose campaign spent $1,040,698 to Advanced Aviation Team last quarter,” adds the website.
“Global climate change is real, it is caused mainly by emissions released from burning fossil fuels and it poses a catastrophic threat to the long-term longevity of our planet,” he writes on his campaign website. “The transportation sector accounts for about 26 percent of carbon pollution emissions.”
