President Trump continued his rhetoric, regarding a program promoted by Sen. Bernie Sanders to expand Medicare to all Americans, which was known as Medicare-for-All. Trump tweeted that "Crazy Bernie" and "his band of Congressional Dems" would outlaw lower-priced Medicare Advantage plans. His claim was not factually based. Sanders said in response to his tweet: “Our proposal would not cut benefits for seniors on Medicare, as the president and his Republican allies claim,” Sanders writes. “In fact, we expand benefits.”
