SANDERS: “Let me just tell you something. In my view, to a significant degree we’re living right now, under Donald Trump, in a socialist society. The only difference is, does the government work for working people or does it work for billionaires? Donald Trump, before he came president, he was in real estate, he received $800 million in tax breaks and subsidies from the government. Socialism for the rich. The fossil fuel industry receives tens of billions of dollars a year in subsidies and tax breaks. That's socialism for the rich.”
