As Mr. Sanders so aptly points out, “this is exactly why so many Americans are frustrated.” Donald Trump stands for everything that Bernie Sanders supporters actively fought against while he was running for president. The Donald may have, effectively, avoided paying taxes for about 18 years due to a series of loopholes and tax breaks that exist for the super wealthy. As is to be expected, Mr. Sanders doesn’t support that. In fact, must of the platform of his presidential bid consisted of speaking out against the ‘big banks’ and ‘Wall Street,’ as well as tax cuts for the wealthy while the country’s working and middle class suffered.
