Trump is going to meet with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the White House tomorrow
Posted On June 22, 2021
Sen. Sanders (D-VT), who is expected to be on Trump’s White House visit, on Wednesday called the president a “friend,” but also called for the president to “come to the table.”
Trump, who met with Sanders in May, tweeted Wednesday, “Sen. Sanders will be coming to the White HOUSE tomorrow.”
Sanders has been one of the most vocal voices for more than two months calling for Trump to be fired.
He said in a press release in June that Trump should resign, and has said he would do so.
“He is an individual who is deeply troubled by the level of trust we have in the administration and the president-elect,” Sanders said in June.
“He has been an outspoken critic of the president, who has shown no interest in changing his policies.
He has shown little concern for the people of this country.
He is deeply concerned about the fate of the country.”
Trump has repeatedly criticized Sanders for his support for the Democrats in the 2016 election, but his tweet about Sanders on Wednesday suggests the president has not given up on the senator.
Sanders has said that the president should come to the negotiating table with the Democrats.
