INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is planning an Indiana rally with a labor union leader who clashed with President Donald Trump over job cuts at the Carrier Corp. factory in Indianapolis.

Sanders campaign staff says the rally on jobs and the economy is set for Monday afternoon at Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis. Sanders will be joined by Chuck Jones, who retired this summer as president of the Carrier plant workers’ union.

Sanders and Trump both picked up the cause of Carrier workers during the 2016 presidential campaign over the company’s plans to cut 1,400 jobs by moving production to Mexico. Trump pressured Carrier to keep some jobs in Indianapolis, but boasted inaccurately about how many were saved.

Sanders won last year’s Indiana Democratic primary over Hillary Clinton.

Not a fan of Bernie! August 17, 2017 at 2:43 pm

Please just go away Bernie! You did not have enough lunatics to help you get elected. We just don’t care to hear anymore of your Socialist banter (Democratic Socialism just like the Nazi’s tried to be more accurate). This is America and you have every right to speak but my god we are tired of you speaking…Retire and go fishing. You don’t even have to pay for a license at your age even though you have more money than I will ever see. It is provided for you under a socialist program that forces me to pay for you. You should love it!

Bernie always makes the distinction that he is a democratic socialist and not a socialist. This shows a disdain of the public. When you look up the definition, this is a distinction without a difference. If you want to see the success of socialism, just look at Venezuela.

Bernie, the guy who honeymooned in the USSR. He is an old grey Stalin looking to start up the Gulags in America.
