Sander's Vows Trump Will Be One-Term President

Sen. Bernie Sanders, predicting that Donald Trump will be a one-term president, pledged Wednesday to “expose the Republican Party for what it is.”

“In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling,” the Vermont progressive told The Associated Press. He suggested that the president’s low approval rating is due to his stance on issues like health care and tax reform. Sanders argued that in both cases, Trump favors the rich at the expense of low- and middle-income Americans.

“I do not believe that if Trump continues these policies that he's going to be re-elected,” the senator said. “Nor do I think that the Republicans are going to do well in 2018. The momentum right now is with the progressive movement in this country. And I think the Republicans are on the defensive and will be on the defensive increasingly.”

Fox News reported that Sanders is scheduled to begin a multi-state trip on Monday. He and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez will hold rallies in places Trump won in last year’s election, hoping to flip them to the Democratic side in the 2018 mid-term election. The officials have scheduled rallies in Maine, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, Nebraska, Utah, Arizona and Nevada.

During last year’s race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sanders drew large crowds throughout the country. Democratic leaders hope his popularity will help them pass legislation and pick up seats in Congress. The Democrats could gain control of the Senate next year by winning in just two additional states.

Sanders said his national trip will “begin the process of fighting back.” He argued that the political climate has shifted since Trump won last year’s election. He pointed to the special election in Kansas on Tuesday, when the Republican candidate narrowly won. The district leans heavily to the GOP. “The Republicans had to spend money like crazy at the end to beat him,” Sanders said. “I think that’s a very good omen for the future.”
