    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) slammed President Trump on Tuesday, saying he has abandoned his campaign promises to help working Americans.

    Sanders told “CBS This Morning” that Trump is pursuing “very different” policies in the White House than he touted on the campaign trail.

    “During the course of the campaign, he said ‘I’m going to stand with the working people, I’m going to take on the pharmaceutical industry, and lower the outrageous price of prescription drugs,” Sanders told CBS. “That’s what he said. “During the campaign, he said one set of things, and the policies he is implementing right now are very different,” he added.

    The senator rattled off a list of campaign promises he said Trump had abandoned.

    He doesn’t consider the peasants as working people.
