The Biden administration has been ‘Far more radical than Bernie Sanders ever thought was possible,” former Pres. Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe released Monday.
Asked about Pres. Biden’s cancellation of the Keystone pipeline, border wall construction, and oil and gas leases, Trump said that Biden isn’t just “bought and paid for by China” – he’s even more radical than Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont):
“Beyond bought and paid for, this is not what he campaigned on. This is more radical, what he’s doing. And I don’t even think it’s him, I think it’s the cabal. This is more radical than anything he campaigned on. This is more radical than Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders never dreamed that they’d be approving things like they’re approving.
“And, it’s unbelievable, what’s happening. This is far more than Bernie Sanders ever thought was possible.
“And, it’s disgraceful. And, they’re trying to destroy our country.”
Biden isn’t just more radical than Bernie Sanders, he’s also being “far more radical than what he was talking about” during his campaign, Trump said, repeating that the president has already exceeded all of Bernie Sanders’ wildest hopes:
“When he campaigned, he never talked about closing the Keystone. I wouldn’t say that he said he was going to keep it, but he certainly didn’t indicate that he was going to, in his almost first week, immediately get rid of it.”
“He never said that during the campaign. On energy, he was pretty positive on energy. And, now, we’re not going to be energy independent in another few months, based on what he’s doing. Gas prices are going through the roof. He never talked about this stuff, he never said.
“This is far more radical than what he was talking about. This is more radical than anything that Bernie Sanders ever thought was possible. It’s crazy.”
