Socialist Bernie Sanders is looking to be a part of Joe Biden’s cabinet if he wins the election. Sanders is particularly keen on being Secretary of Labor.
“I can confirm he’s trying to figure out how to land that role or something like it,” a source close to Sanders told Politico. “He, personally, does have an interest in it.”
Sanders, of course, won’t confirm or deny the report. “Right now I am focused on seeing that Biden is elected president,” he said.
But two sources close to him say that Sanders has expressed interest in joining a Biden administration and that he’s specifically pushing for the top post at the Department of Labor.
If the prospect of a
Biden Harris presidency wasn’t scary enough, the prospect of an unrepentant socialist leading the Department of Labor sends shivers down my spine.
Bernie Sanders is a proponent of the Green New Deal, which will destroy our economy,
And it also has me asking how the Never-Trumpers who still consider themselves conservatives could still support Biden with the prospect of Bernie Sanders heading the Department of Labor. Do they really want the man who will turn America into another Venezuela being in such a power position? Even if they’ve convinced themselves that Joe Biden is a centrist, can they really turn a blind eye to Bernie Sanders being a part of the Biden administration?
Keep in mind that Joe Biden is in Bernie Sanders’ debt. Trump was able to siphon off a number of Bernie Sanders supporters in 2016, and the Biden-Sanders unity task force has been crucial in keeping Bernie Bros in the Biden camp this election. Bernie has also campaigned for Joe Biden, and has had a significant influence on his policy positions.
If you’re a conservative Never-Trumper, is it really worth voting against Trump at the risk of having the most radical people in the Democratic Party running the government?
