Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, now a Fox News contributor, talked about the possibility of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) winning the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, giving insight on how the current political climate is in favor of President Donald Trump.
“There couldn’t be better news for President Trump. I think that she has moved so far to the left in the way that she wants to fix the country I think that it will certainly help re-elect the president,” Sanders said, noting that Warren has shifted so much in her political stance that Americans may no longer be willing to support her.
“You know, it’s interesting—if you look at some of the things that she’s talking about and some of the things the president is talking about of what the problems in the country are—they’ve actually identified a lot of the same problems,” Sanders said, suggesting that Trump focuses on the problems in a conventional manner while Warren has resorted to more radical ideas. “But if you listen to how they want to solve them, you couldn’t find a more stark contrast than between the two of them.”
Sanders called the Democratic presidential candidates as “so beholden to this far left-wing part of the party—the AOCs and The Squad—that they’re trying to appease them.”
“I think that the far-left radical ideas that she’s bringing to the table are just not going to sell in most of America. And I think that is a great thing for the president, and frankly, it’s a good thing for the country because it helps make sure that we get four more years under this president.”
Sanders on Sunday, Sept. 29 appeared on The CATS Roundtable to tell host John Catsimatidis about what she thinks regarding Warren’s nomination and what things are looking like for President Trump.
“I think it’s going to be impossible to come back to the middle and try to regain some of those independent voters,” Sanders explained. “And you know, some of the people like Elizabeth Warren—I don’t think she wants to come back to the middle. I think she believes that the far left side is right I think it’s a scary thing for America if she becomes president.”
The impeachment inquiry launched by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Tuesday, following the whistleblower complaint accusing President Trump of improperly asking Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s dealings in Ukraine, was described by Sanders as a very risky move by the Democrats.
“It’s a dangerous way to engage in election,” Sanders warned of the impeachment inquiry on the “CATS Roundtable” show, “and I think that frankly, it’s backfiring on Democrats.”
Sanders is a firm believer that radical ideas “are just not going to sell in most of America” and if the Democrats create an opening for Warren in 2020, there will be “no better news for Trump” and Warren’s policies will urge voters to “help re-elect the president.”
She also said during a recent appearance on Fox News jesting about the Democrats’ ideas, remarking “They’re so stupid,” and recently told a Republican group that “destructive chaos” awaits America if Democrats win in 2020, the Daily Caller reported.
