Sanders and socialist "squad": take Biden to far-left. Radical-left Democrat 'Squad' lawmakers discuss plans to control Joe Biden's policies.
Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and the radical-left "Squad" of Democrats have revealed they intend to push Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to be "the most progressive president since FDR" if he wins the election.
Sanders and Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) discussed how they would control a Biden administration during a virtual meeting.
“Our first task; we've got to defeat the worst president in modern history in this country," Sanders told the controversial congresswomen.
"...and number two; we organize our people to make sure that Biden becomes the most progressive president since FDR,” he added during the interview with the group of far-left lawmakers known as the “Squad.”
Some people ask what an old Jewish white guy has in common with young women of color like @AOC, @AyannaPressley, @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) October 31, 2020

This year, the Squad backed Sanders’ primary campaign, which was ultimately beaten by Biden’s.
Sanders conceded that Biden’s current proposals do not “go as far as we would want” but suggested they could push him to the left once he gets into office.
The Trump campaign has claimed that Biden will be dragged to the far-left if he wins the election on Tuesday.
Biden has denied those claims repeatedly, however.
Sanders is reported to be pushing for a position in a potential Biden cabinet.
Politico reported that he has reached out to contacts within Biden’s transition team with a specific interest in the labor secretary position.
Sanders told Politico at the moment he’s solely “focused on seeing that Biden is elected president.”
Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez said recently that young Americans won't just vote for the Democratic presidential nominee because they think he is “their favorite person.”
She says they will vote Biden because they believe the radical-left can more easily sway him to act on behalf of their interests.
“Right now young people are so clear on their stances on so many political issues that they believe that they want to vote for a president that is at least is going to be receptive to their advocacy, activism, and protests, frankly," she said.
