Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Wednesday on “All In” that his colleague Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was helping President Donald Trump undermine American democracy by announcing he will object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral college win in the Senate.
Guest host Mehdi Hasan said, “Senator, you mentioned Donald Trump. You’ve worked with Republican Senator Josh Hawley on trying to get $2000 checks into the relief bill. Today he’s announced that he’ll be objecting to the election result next week in Congress. How is this not anything other than an open and very dangerous attack on American democracy by Senator Hawley and other Republicans in the House?”
Sanders said, “You’re right. I can’t argue with you. You’re absolutely right. What Trump is doing and those people who support his approach are trying to delegitimize elections in this country, and that is undermining American democracy.”
