Not only is Bernie Sanders a socialist running for president of the United States, but apparently he’s one who praises – not American history – but Chinese leadership for all the “things” they’ve done for “their people.”
In a recent interview, Crazy Bernie as Trump nicknamed him, claimed that China has “made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization…So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”
This is the same man who berates American’s so-called horrific history of capitalism, that gave birth to our great, free, wealthy nation.
Apparently in Bernie's eyes, liberty is not the ideal of a country. Communistic totalitarianism is.
And what's even more scary is that this same man, Bernie Sanders, is just behind forerunner Joe Biden in the polls for Democrat nominee.
That's how much support a man who literally spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union has from like-minded far-left liberals in the United States.
That's just one more reason President Trump and his pro-USA policies are what our country needs most right now.
Let's Make America Even Greater and get Trump re-elected in 2020!
You with me?
Here's an excerpt from Bernie's interview with The Hill:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) offered praise for China while stating in an interview that he believed the U.S. could have a positive relationship with the country, saying it had made "more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization."
The Democratic presidential candidate offered a nuanced view of Beijing, criticizing it for a move toward authoritarianism and stating that it looked out for its own interests first, but also saying it had made progress in helping its own people over the last several decades.
"China is a country that is moving unfortunately in a more authoritarian way in a number of directions,” Sanders told Hill.TV’s Krystal Ball. "But what we have to say about China in fairness to China and it’s leadership is if I’m not mistaken they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, so they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”
Sanders said the the United States would have "hoped that they would move toward a more Democratic form of government," and criticized China for "moving in the opposite direction."
Beijing has come under criticism recently for battles between police and demonstrators in the semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong.
At the same time, Sanders said he did not believe China represented an "existential threat" to the United States.
"Their economy now is struggling but I think it is absolutely possible for us to have a positive working relationship with China," said Sanders, who has been battling with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for support in the Democratic primary.
The Washington Examiner also said:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders applauded the Chinese government's anti-poverty programs in an answer to a question about tensions between the country and the United States during an interview aired Tuesday.
"They're a country that vigorously protects their own interests," the Vermont senator said in an interview with The Hill. "But what we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership, is if I'm not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, okay? So they've done a lot of things for their people."
Sanders later went on to talk about a potentially healthy relationship between the US and China should he be elected president and slammed China's entry into the World Trade Organization as a "trade agreement written by large profitable corporations who wanted cheap labor."
