GOP frontrunner Donald Trump fans have questions for Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders and his followers.
At a rally in New York, Trump fans were asked by the Buzzfeed to write down questions they would want to ask the supporters of Bernie Sanders. What followed was a string of interesting and amusing queries. It is now time to see what Sanders’ supporters respond to these questions with.
“Who’s going to pay for college?” read a question posed by a Trump supporter at the rally for Sanders. It refers to Sanders’ higher education policy which seeks to make college tuition-free.
In December, Sanders said Trump is trying to win over people by turning their legitimate concerns into hatred. “Many of Trump’s supporters are working-class people and they’re angry, and they’re angry because they’re working longer hours for lower wages, they’re angry because their jobs have left this country and gone to China or other low-wage countries, they’re angry because they can’t afford to send their kids to college so they can’t retire with dignity,” the CBS News quoted him as saying.
Another Trump supporter asked, “Who’s paying for the wall?” This is in reference to Trump’s plans for building a wall on the US border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigration that may not have gone down well with critics, but it sure has found support amongst many.
Sanders, the self-proclaimed socialist, managed to relinquish that, which typically characterises capitalism and famously declared, “The business model of Wall Street is fraud.” However, to Trump fans, Sanders is not what he proclaims of himself.
Queries like, “Do you understand the term ‘Socialism’” or “What is the real meaning of Socialism to you!!” figured amongst the other questions. However, Buzzfeed also allowed the supporters of Sanders a chance to present their queries to Trump followers.
“Why are you supporting an outright racist?” asked one of the supporters. Another supporter took a dig at Trump’s plans to “Make America Great Again.”
“Make America Great Again … as if it isn’t right now?” the question read.
