He’s playing with fire here…

Recently on MSNBC, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gave his two cents on President Donald Trump advising Israel to ban Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from visiting, to which Israel initially did before eventually allowing Tlaib to enter to visit family.

“What’s your reaction to President Trump asking the president of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, to do this, and Netanyahu obliging?” MSNBC’s Ali Velshi questioned.

“Well I wish I could tell you, Ali, that I am shocked. I am not,” Sanders stated. “We have a president who tragically is a racist, is a xenophobe and who is a religious bigot. But the idea that a member of the United States Congress cannot visit a nation which, by the way, we support to the tune of billions and billions of dollars, is clearly an outrage.”

“And if Israel doesn’t want members of the United States Congress to visit their country to get a first hand look at what’s going on, and I’ve been there many many times, but if he doesn’t want members to visit, maybe he can respectfully decline the billions of dollars that we give to Israel,” he said.

  1. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are despicable to say at the very least as they continue to lie daily, about trump the people on the right and the theft of Americans money for the purpose of helping these illegal aliens that came here on their own accord we did not invite them , Because people like Bernie Sanders and Warren told these people they would be showered with all kind of free stuff, make no mistake about it that’s what they’re up to. Bernie Sanders is a little Marxist you has pictures of communist heroes on his walls in his office. Communism only works for the half a percent ruling elite and Bernie fits right in that category along with Elizabeth Warren and most all the rest of the people in the communist a.k.a. Democrat party congress!
