Sanders: Trump ‘Is The Most Dangerous President in Modern American History’
MARGARET BRENNAN: You, today, have hit this benchmark, you know, end of first quarter funding financing for the campaign. I believe you said you wanted one million donors by this time. Did you meet—
SEN. SANDERS: One million—
MARGARET BRENNAN: —that goal?
SEN. SANDERS: —contributions. One million—
MARGARET BRENNAN: Did you meet the goal?
SEN. SANDERS: —contributions. I’m not quite sure. But I am enormously impressed by the many, many, hundreds of thousands of Americans who are making contributions. Many of them are very small contributions. I am also impressed by the fact that we have over one million people from every state in this country who have volunteered to work on what will be an unprecedented grassroots campaign. Look, Margaret, the way we win the Democratic nomination, the way we beat Trump- who in my mind is the most dangerous president in modern American history- is through a massive grassroots effort, which demands that we have an economy and a government which works for all of us and not just the one percent. That we end this massive level of income and wealth inequality where three of the wealthiest people own more wealth than the bottom half of Americans, while at the same time over half the people in this country are working paycheck to paycheck.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Will you be—
SEN. SANDERS: They cannot afford a health care—
MARGARET BRENNAN: —releasing your-your tax returns? Senator Gillibrand did so this week, or some of them.
SEN. SANDERS: Yeah, we will. I mean, we have it all done and it’s just a question of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. Yes, we will, absolutely.
MARGARET BRENNAN: So—
SEN. SANDERS: And by the way, let me challenge President Trump to do the same. Trust me, we do not have investments in Russia or Saudi Arabia or anyplace else. Yes, we will be releasing them.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Senator, we’ll be watching your campaign. Look forward to talking to you again sometime soon.
SEN. SANDERS: Thank you.
