    Default Democratic Bernie: "Trump Believes In Corporate Socialism For The Rich And Powerful."

    "“If you are the Trump family, you got 885 million worth of tax breaks and subsidies for your family's housing empire, that was built [sic] on racial discrimination. When Trump screams socialism, all of his hypocrisy will not be lost on the American people,” Sanders said. “That is the difference between Donald Trump and me. He believes in corporate socialism, for the rich and powerful, I believe in a Democratic socialism that works for the working families of this country.”

    ...

    "We must take the next step forward and guarantee every man, woman and child in our country basic economic rights – the right to quality health care, the right to as much education as one needs to succeed in our society, the right to a decent job, the right to affordable housing, the right to a secure retirement and the right to live in a clean environment," Sanders said. "We must recognize that in the 21st century, in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, economic rights are human rights."

    "That is what I mean by Democratic socialism," he added.

    The senator continued by noting that the government intervention he was proposing in health care, welfare, education and other facets of society goes uncriticized by "President Trump and his fellow oligarchs" when delivered in the form of "corporate socialism."

    "In 2008, after their greed, recklessness and illegal behavior created the worst financial disaster since the Great Depression, with millions of Americans losing their jobs, losing their homes, losing their life savings, Wall Street's religious adherence to unfettered capitalism suddenly came to an end," he recounted. "Overnight, Wall Street became big government socialists and begged for the largest federal bailout in American history: some $700 billion from the Treasury and trillions in support from the Federal Reserve."

    ...

    Sanders addressed some of the expected criticism during his remarks in Washington, explaining that it was to be expected and that there would be "those who attempt to use the word socialism as a slur."

    "But I should also tell you, that I have faced and overcome these attacks for decades," he said. "And I am not the only one." "

    Bernie Sanders, channeling FDR, argues case for Democratic Socialism, pitches 'economic Bill of Rights'

    That should be his slogan.

    It wasn't TRUMP who paid off WALL ST. after the economelt, gave BILLIONS to SOLYNDRA, who then "lost it", but managed to have $millions left for the Obama Re-election fund, or had $12 trillion in currency printed, handed to the SAME BANKS that CRASHED THE ECEONOMY for them to use on/prop up the stock market, was it?

    No, Trump didn't bail out the banks.

    They bailed HIM out.

    Interesting fun fact from the 2016 election:


    Why Billionaires Favor Clinton over Trump


    Donald Trump might be in the billionaire’s club, but his cohorts don’t want him to be the next president.

    In fact, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has out-raised Trump 20 to 1 when it comes to donations from billionaires, according to an analysis by Bloomberg Monday. While Clinton has collected $21.1 million for her campaign and related political action committees from 17 U.S. billionaires, Trump has received $1.02 million from 12.

    Clinton’s biggest supporters, at least based on their donations, are two Wall Streeters: George Soros, who has raised $11.9 million on behalf of Clinton, and James Simons, who has brought in $7 million.

    Trump’s biggest billionaire donors are the founder of Public Storage, Bradley W. Hughes Sr., and real estate mogul, Richard LeFrak. Hughes has given $449,000 to Trump’s campaign, while LeFrak has donated $100,000.


    That said, billionaires’ funds are a mere fraction of each campaign’s total donations: it’s roughly 6% of Clinton’s $373.3 million and 0.006% of Trump’s $165.9 million.

    Clinton’s sizable donation from Wall Street will likely be a sore spot for the candidate during the presidential debate Monday night. Already, the nominee’s relationship with the financial industry has come under fire several times throughout the campaign trail. While banks don’t particularly like Clinton’s idea to add more regulations, they still consider her the more stable option for the economy.

    Meanwhile, experts note that Clinton’s plans to spend more on infrastructure, focus on economic growth, and leave doors open to international trade (at least more so than Trump plans to do) are likely to create a better atmosphere for businesses.

    And billionaires aside, even the CEOs of the Fortune 100 have donated nothing to Trump, despite the nominee’s assertion that he is a successful businessman and would be better for the U.S. economy.

    Honestly, I don't really know nor care what billionaires think about Trump. But you can see who they donated too in the past election. Granted we don't have a 2020 Democratic candidate yet but have you seen anything that shows they are now moving their money to Trump?

    I've paid no attention to the money. I am but a fool who imagines we choose our political leaders based on their message.

    If we're not following the money how do you, I or anyone know who billionaires support? Was there recent polling done on them?

    If the economy crashed as bad as 2008 while Trump is president, and he faced the decisions faced by GWB and Obama?

    Trump would be for corporate bail outs in a heart beat.
