Donald Trump is appealing to Bernie Sanders backers and supporters now that Hillary Clinton has chosen Tim Kaine as her running mate.
“The Bernie Sanders supporters are furious with the choice of Tim Kaine, who represents the opposite of what Bernie stands for,” Trump tweeted Saturday about Hillary Clinton’s new running mate. “Philly fight?”
Then Trump followed up with a post attacking the Virginia senator: “Tim Kaine is, and always has been, owned by the banks. Bernie supporters are outraged, was their last choice. Bernie fought for nothing!”
The Republican nominee made a similar call to Sanders supporters during his nomination acceptance speech Thursday, noting that the Vermont senator and his supporters oppose free-trade agreements that send jobs overseas.
And Bernie fans should be voting for Trump. Tim Kaine is a male carbon copy version of Hillary, and will do nothing to advance their progressive agenda. Hillary failed on the possibility of swaying Bernie voters by choosing Kaine. If Bernie fans want to see real anti-establishment change, Trump is their guy.
