Bernie Sanders said Monday that if he were elected president as an independent, he would fight to elect Democrats as much as Republicans in the fall, calling the GOP “probably the most electable party” in the country.

“What the Republican Party is doing is going to get even worse when the Republican president-elect comes into office because there’s a lot of people who, if he is elected, will go on to win,” Sanders told NBC’s Chuck Todd. “But at the same time the Republicans are going to be the party of big government, big-business tra공주출장마사지de and immigration policies, and of the most protectionist trade policy ever of any major country on earth, which is NAFTA. It’s devastating to the poor and working people.”

The Democratic Party, Sanders said, is an issue in which Democrats in “vast numbers” are opposed.

“What the Republican party has done is build the greatest corporate concentration of wealth and economic power in the history of the world and will be even worse if Trump is elected전립선,” Sanders said. “To what extent does the union movement want to be involved in that process?”

He added that he could see Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign “giving a lot of effort” to challenging Trump.

“I believe she’ll win,” Sanders said of Clinton’s candidacy. “I would expect Hillary Clinton to be the most formidable opponent. I believe it should be possible. It is probably the most electable. It is probably the one in which people of the left, I suspect, can participate in a campaign.”

He said it might be “very difficult” to defeat Trump in a primary and then beat him if he becomes the GOP nominee.

“There will be a lot of people in that campaign who believe — who may not like Clinton but would certainly like to have her in the White House, believe that she’s probably going to be a more competent, more experienced president than Donald Trump,” Sanders said. “I don’t know that it’s going to be possible but that’s what happens when you’ve got people voting for the candidate who they think is going to win. The right choice is going to be the candidate who they believe will be the most electable.”

Federal budget 2017: housing

The president’s top priority, he told a small group of reporters this morning, is cutting the debt.

“We’re going to save money on every룰렛 one of our promises, but also we’re going to create the jobs and growth that we promised,” Trump said.

Trump said he has no other big decisions this week.

But, according to Trump’s own budget chief Mick Mulvaney, his first budget is a big deal:

“I don’t know that you’ve heard many budget summaries so far in 2018,” Mulvaney told the Associated Press. “It’s a major first step in implementing our policies that we’ve been pursuing and it’s a big lift out of what we had to endure at the last budget level. But I think in the next few weeks we will start to see a lot more, so we’ll keep you updated.”

Trump has already released a list of the president’s policies to his own tax reform commission and a new White House Council of Economic Advisers is also scheduled to launch next week.

To help the middle class and tackle climate change, Trump plans to roll out a new set of tax cuts with a number of tax simplification measures along the way, like the elimination of the deduction for state and local taxes.

Trump’s budget blueprint also includes a boost to investment in rural areas across the nation, which he previously promised to do if reelected, and he is set to cut the military budget to $54 billion from a projected $70 billion budget of $110 billion in his first year in office.

Trump has also vowed to keep America’s immigration system fair as he heads into the final stretch of the campaign, promising to remove the border wall by the end of his presidency.

“We can’t have the country that I want,” Trump said during a rally on Tuesday evening in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. “We need to keep that country fair. We can’t let other countries take advantage. We can’t let illegal workers come in, or illegal people come in from other countries. And we have to be very strict.”

In addition, the president would start to address the opioid epidemic, which is costing th월드 카지노e American economy $30 billion in lost economic activity.

While Trump doesn’t mention 전주출장마사지the opioid epidemic during his press conference, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said o
