    Trump campaign steps up attacks on Sanders



    The Trump campaign is stepping up its attacks on Bernie Sanders, a reflection of the Independent Vermont senator's momentum in the race for the Democratic nomination and his sharp criticism of a U.S. military strike against an Iran official that has provoked turmoil in the Middle East.

    At a campaign rally in Toledo, Ohio, on Thursday night, Trump singled out Sanders for criticizing the strike that resulted in the death of Gen. Qassem Soleimani. A separate Trump campaign statement warned that Sanders "can't be trusted to defend American lives" as commander in chief.

    Both Trump and Sanders have campaigned on the promise to end U.S. involvement in military conflicts in the Middle East, but escalating tensions in Iran have complicated the president's message on that front.

    At the moment, Trump and Sanders are going toe-to-toe over Iran, as the Vermont senator has sought to cast himself as the most stridently anti-war Democrat in the race and a leading critic of the administration's decision to take out the Iranian general.

    The debate is particularly salient because both Trump and Sanders have fashioned themselves as skeptics of military interventionism. Trump has hammered the GOP establishment over the U.S.-led war in Iraq, and Sanders has pummeled Biden over his vote to authorize that military action.

    Sanders and Khanna released new legislation this week to limit Trump's options on Iran while blasting the lawmakers who voted to authorize a $738 billion military budget that "places no restrictions on the president from starting an unauthorized war with Iran."

    "We know that it will ultimately be the children of working-class families who will have to fight and die in a new Middle East conflict, not the children of the billionaire class," Sanders and Khanna said in a joint statement. "At a time when we face the urgent need to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, to build the housing we desperately need, and to address the existential crisis of climate change, we as a nation, must get our priorities right."

    Watch me predict the future. I am amazing, just watch.

    Trumpbots will come in here and want to discuss anything but Iran. They will try and attack Bernie in any other way, and change the subject, because they know this isn't even 2-D chess, nor checkers.

    Donald Trump ceded the non-interventionist ground to Bernie, and it will cost him re-election in 2020.

    I am honestly wondering if Trump is trying to lose.

    We haven't forgotten the disaster of Iraq. We haven't forgotten that everyone keeps promising to bring our troops home, and does the opposite. There is a political cost to exposing yourself as a bold faced liar.

    Maybe not a cost to Trump through his cult, but the Trump cult is only a part of the 47% of the voting public that elected Trump. If 2% of those voters abandon him, he has already lost.

    A vote for Trump, is a vote for war with Iran when he isn't facing re-election.

    Bernie will disappoint so many people by continuing the same trajectory we’ve been on for decades.

    Thankfully, he won’t win.

    So what 3rd party candidate is going to win?

    Because John McCains ghost that has possessed Trump's body certainly isn't going to win.

    The only people who are low enough to actually put up with Trump are neocon nutcases who want war. All the ethical administration officials are gone. It'll get worse if somehow Trump gets re elected.

    How scary! Well Time to abandon my belief system and support a candidate who stands for absolutely nothing I believe in.

    No, just stay home, or vote 3rd party like all the anti-clinton folk like myself did.

    That is why he will lose.

    Tulsi Gabbard is the most anti war politician today. Not bernie sanders.

    Weren't you the guy predicting(repeatedly) that Trump wouldn't even be running for a second term?

    You might want to check your crystal ball for cracks.

    I never thought the RNC was dumb enough to run someone they know will lose.

    Trump would lose to Biden at this point.

    I thought the RNC wanted to win.

    I was wrong.

    No, I will vote against liberals, no matter what. They're a cancer to middle class people like me.

    Bernie, huh?

    Didn't he get cowed onstage by a couple of women? He will be paralyzed by the MIC and their influence.

    Ha!

    Tell me more about how the largest corporate tax break in history is helping the middle class.

    Tell me more about how Trump is anti-interventionist when he is trying to start a war, by engaging in what any thinking person would call a act of war.

    Brah, this isn't 2015 Trump with no political history.

    This man's actions don't match your rhetoric.

    God I hope someone pays a couple actors to pretend they are pro-2nd, and demand Trump explain his gun grabbing.

    Then we can watch him cower.
