Democrats and socialism have slowly turned into one and the same. And now, Barack Obama basically admits it.
According to The Hill, Barack Obama told the New Yorker that Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden “aren’t that different.” He says that Joe Biden has even gone more extreme left in his policies because “circumstances have changed.”
Obama Says Biden And Sanders Have Similar Goals
Obama told the New Yorker that Bernie Sanders both have the same goals in mind for America. Biden, who used to claim to be a moderate, has slowly become more radical in recent years. And now Obama even says that he’s similar to socialist Bernie Sanders:
“If you look at Joe Biden’s goals and Bernie Sanders’s goals, they’re not that different, from a forty-thousand-foot level.”
Obama continued, saying that Biden and Sanders both have similar approaches to health care and minimum wages and socialized education:
“They both want to make sure everybody has health care. They want to make sure everybody can get a job that pays a living wage. They want to make sure every child gets a good education.”
Obama then proceeded to admit that Biden has slid to the left on issues more and more over the years for tactical reasons. He said Biden did it because “circumstances have changed,” saying:
“A lot of times, the issue has to do with ‘How do we go about that, and what are the coalitions we need? What I think the moment has done is to change some of those calculations, not because necessarily Joe’s changed but because circumstances have changed.”
Trump Has Said It Before
Obama’s statement comes after President Donald Trump has called out Joe Biden for bringing radicalism to America.
Trump’s campaign even recently released an ad targeting Biden for “mainstreaming” radical policies. And it seems to be working.
According to a new poll, Donald Trump has a 10 point lead over Biden with independent voters. Apparently, Trump is winning over their support as well as Republican support.
