Senator Bernie Sanders took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to launch an attack on Donald Trump by using a blow-up of one of the president-elect’s own tweets.
The Vermont independent called out Trump on his plans for Medicare and Medicaid benefits, pointing out Trump’s promise that there would be no cuts to the social safety net.
The May, 2015 tweet states: “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.”
“Millions of people voted for him on the belief that he would keep his word,” Sanders told the cameras, referring to Trump’s promises during the 2016 campaign.
