The former Democratic presidential candidate used the prop as a reference as he called on the president-elect to either veto any legislation to cut Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security or admit that he “lied” to the American people.
“On May 7, 2015, Donald Trump tweeted, ‘I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid.’”
“Now the point is Trump didn’t just say this in passing,” Sanders added, with the enlarged tweet on display behind him, “This was a cornerstone of his campaign. He said it over and over and over again.”
Sanders is set to appear Monday at a CNN town hall, where he “will discuss the Democratic strategy for dealing with Trump’s administration.”
