Charles Payne: ‘Bernie Sanders Is the Logical Outcome of Barack Obama’
PAYNE: "Right. But I have to say that in many respects Bernie Sanders is the logical outcome of Barack Obama. And it’s not just on Cuba. It’s on forgiving college tuition. Barack Obama planted that seed. Almost everything that Bernie talks about to the extremes were planted by Obama, including the trip to Havana. Go back and look at the news in 2016. It was the new falling of the Berlin Wall. It was the end of the final chapter of the Cold War. 1,200 people went down in the delegation. President Obama did the wave with Raul Castro. There was a serious push to normalize Cuba. So why is anyone shocked that this is what we have seen out of that. This is almost all of Bernie’s things, his ideas, you know, under the Obama’s presidency those seeds were planted. He is taking them to the extreme. But we knew they would grow and he is the one who has latched onto it."
