Bernie Sanders makes campaign stop in Amherst

“Here’s a Trump supporter anxious about Mr. Trump’s money”, Sanders said, as the crowd began to boo the heckler. “Let’s win this caucus and let’s go forward in making 2016 a year that people for hundreds of years from now will remember as the year we transformed America”.

“Strange, but I see wacko Bernie Sanders’ allies coming over to me because I’m lowering taxes, while he will double and triple them – a disaster!” the real estate mogul tweeted.

Sanders is closing out the year in Iowa, where he is holding several events this week, including a New Year’s Eve party at a hotel in Des Moines.

Sanders’s appeal in a high school gym here came a couple of hours after he was heckled by a man wearing a Trump T-shirt at another Sanders rally in a packed auditorium at the flagship campus in Amherst of the University of MA.

This week Sanders has hit back at Republican candidate Donald Trump, who has suggested Sanders will have to raise tax rates on the wealthy to “90 percent” to fulfill all his campaign promises. “No, we are not going to hate Latinos”.

“How about creating an economy that is not rigged?” he said. Black Lives Matter. Expand funding for Planned Parenthood.

Sanders said the recapture of territory from the Islamic State group is a positive step in the battle.

If you take Donald Trump’s word for it, the golf community should fear a future in which Bernie Sanders is president.

WHAT’S NEXT: Sanders wrapped up a three-day swing through Iowa on Thursday.

That still trails Hillary Clinton’s fundraising numbers, announced Friday at $37 million for the fourth quarter – pushing her past her $100 million 2015 goal.

REACTION: Many members of the crowd wore Sanders’ shirts, buttons and hats. As we travel the country campaigning for Bernie, we hear a lot of people saying, “I love Bernie, but I am not sure he can win.’ But poll after poll shows Bernie is the most electable Democrat”.

Pittsfield resident Jeffrey Ross, who attended the rally, said he prefers Sanders’ “reality-based policies” and “110-percent support for the environment”, which he said was unique among any presidential contender.
