Seniors, women — and these two, along with evangelicals, are places where the president should do very well.”

“Let’s not forget, Donald Trump is still the ultimate outsider, the disrupter, the change agent going up against the ultimate Washington insider. Joe Biden is a liberal career politician who has been part of the problem for the last 50 years,” she remarked.
“Donald Trump has only been there for three years and already managed to do a tremendous amount of good. A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for free healthcare for illegal immigrants. It’s a vote against good judges. It’s a vote against protecting the unborn,” Sanders continued. “These are issues that Donald Trump must remind voters of. Make that distinction and I feel he will do extraordinarily effectively with these three key voting blocks that he must win.
