Donald Trump has had nothing but bad news in the last week. First he won the presidential election, which he had no intention of actually winning and only wanted free publicity. Second Trump embarrassed himself when he found out how much work the president actually has to do. Third, and most importantly, Trump’s worst nightmare has come to fruition now that Sen. Bernie Sanders has received a top leadership position within the Democratic party whose sole purpose is to dismantle the coalition of voters who brought Trump to power. Sen. Sanders has proved himself to be an individual who will not back down from a fight, and he has been chomping at the bit to attack Trump. That moment has arrived.
Sanders vowed on Twitter:
If Donald Trump takes people’s anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare.
Sanders has been named the Chairman of Outreach for the Democratic party. This means Sanders will be working to bring new voters to vote for Democrats. Further, Sanders is now the top Democrat on the Senate Budget Committee, which means he will be able to close the purse strings on the government whenever he likes to thwart Trump. Sanders said:
I’m going to do everything that I can to make sure that the budget that leaves the United States Congress is a budget that represents the needs of working families and a shrinking middle class and not billionaires.
The clash of these two ideologically opposite titans will begin in less than two months. Get your popcorn ready.
