A terrified Donald Trump threw a temper tantrum on Twitter after Bernie Sanders obliterated the billionaire by fact bombing his lies.
During an interview on CBS’ Face The Nation, Sen. Sanders said, “Meanwhile, interestingly enough, John, this is a guy who does not want to raise the minimum wage. In fact, he has said that he thinks wages in America are too high. But he does want to give hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to top three-tenths of one percent.”
Trump responded by throwing a fit on Twitter:
.@BernieSanders-who blew his campaign when he gave Hillary a pass on her e-mail crime, said that I feel wages in America are too high. Lie!

Video proves that Trump has said that wages are too high twice.
The first time was during the Fox Business Republican presidential debate:
During the debate, Trump said, “But, taxes too high, wages too high, we’re not going to be able to compete against the world. I hate to say it, but we have to leave it the way it is. People have to go out, they have to work really hard and have to get into that upper stratum. But we can not do this if we are going to compete with the rest of the world. We just can’t do it.”
Trump repeated the same point about wages the next morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe:
Trump said, “We have to become competitive with the world. Our taxes are too high. Our wages are too high.”
Sen. Sanders (I-VT) responded to Trump by saying that the billionaire is getting nervous.
Sanders said, “Donald Trump says that I’m a liar because I said he believes wages in America are too high. Really?…It appears that Mr. Trump is getting nervous that working families are catching on that his policies represent the interests of the billionaire class against almost everyone else. He refuses to support raising the minimum wage. He believes wages are too high, and he wants to provide hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the very richest families in America. That’s not an agenda that ‘makes America great.’ It’s just another Republican billionaire wanting to make the very rich richer at the expense of working families.”
The Democratic presidential candidate nailed it, but I would suggest that nervous was a bit of an understatement. Trump is terrified that voters will catch on to his fraud. Donald Trump is a con man who is trying to fast talk his way to the White House.
Bernie Sanders has done something that no Republican presidential candidate has been able to do. Sanders has thrown Trump off of his game. Both Sen. Sanders and former Sec. of State Clinton understand that Donald Trump is a bully, and the way to handle a bully is to stand up to them. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio get weak in the knees every time they confront Trump. Ted Cruz alternates between embracing and avoiding Trump.
The Democrats are the only candidates who have been willing to knock Trump down.
Donald Trump doesn’t want a fight with Bernie Sanders because this is the real world, not reality television. Sanders is a political brawler who will not only take on Trump. He will defeat him.
