During the State of the Union, President Trump denounced Socialism, and said the USA “will never be a socialist country. As you might guess Bernie Sanders had an interesting response, as Reason reports:
Trump was discussing the situation in Venezuela, where his administration has recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the nation’s new president, rather than Nicolás Maduro. “We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom—and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair,” Trump said.
“Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence—not government coercion, domination, and control,” he added. “We are born free, and we will stay free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”
As Trump was discussing socialism, the camera panned to Sanders, who seemed to have a frown on his face:
Watch the whole hilarious thing:
President Donald Trump slams socialism: "America was founded on liberty and Independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free and we will stay free."
"America will never be a socialist country."

That was Donald Trump at his best. Trolling Bernie and AOC while reassuring the American people that the USA would never be a socialist country.
The response was swift:
The smirk on #Pelosi ‘s face says it all 🤡

Only in America will politicians sit in their comfortable homes and clamor for socialism knowing fully well they will never be exposed to it.

Poor Bernie, Poor Ocasio-Cortez, stabbed in the back by the leaders of the Democratic party.
