President Trump discussed most of his potential 2020 opponents in a pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
According to Town Hall:
President Donald Trump called Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders “a communist” and blasted other Democrats in an interview that aired Sunday before Super Bowl LIV.
Speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Trump was asked to respond to some of the names of Democrats who are seeking their party’s presidential nomination. When asked about Sanders, Trump replied, “Well, I think he’s a communist. I mean you know, look. I think of communism when I think of Bernie. Now you could say socialist, but didn’t he get married in Moscow?”
But Trump allowed that Sanders is “true to what he believes,” which is more than the president could say about Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Trump also went after the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter, who has been scrutinized for accepting a lucrative seat on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma, while his father was then-President Barack Obama’s point man in that country. Hunter has said his only regret for fulfilling that role is that people believe “ridiculous conspiracy theories.”
President Trump didn’t hold back and maybe gave a peek inside the strategy he will use to take on each individual opponent.
