Bernie Sanders Displays Giant Trump Tweet on Senate Floor: The President Is Right!

‘Nobody here has disagreed with Trump more times than I have’

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) whacked Republican lawmakers on Wednesday for refusing to hold a vote on President Donald Trump’s request to increase direct stimulus payments to Americans from $600 to $2,000.

Singling out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sanders said McConnell should listen to people in his own state on “how they feel about the need for immediate help.”

“I have a strong feeling that the people of Kentucky will respond no differently than the people of Vermont or New York,” he said.

He also reiterated his request to have a vote on that $2,000 with no strings attached.

“All that we are asking for is a vote. What is the problem?!” he asked.

And then Sanders brought up the president as an “unlikely ally,” featuring a giant display of the president’s “$2,000 ASAP!” tweet.

“Nobody here has disagreed with Trump more times than I have, and yet here is what the leader of the Republican party says. He says ‘$2,000 ASAP!’ So even on this issue, amazingly enough, the President of the United States is right!” the Vermont senator said.
