Former Obama Official Warns of Socialism
Article from The Daily Caller by David Krayden.
Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel warned Democrats in an Atlantic op-ed published Monday to not take socialist bait from Republicans, or else President Donald Trump could be re-elected in 2020.
Rahm, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton and chief of staff to President Barack Obama, wrote in his opinion piece that the Democratic Party is increasingly being characterized by its most extreme and socialist members.
“If Trump’s only hope for winning a second term turns on his ability to paint us as socialists, we shouldn’t play to type,” he insists.
“Earth to Democrats: Republicans are telling you something when they gleefully schedule votes on proposals like the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, and a 70-percent marginal tax rate. When they’re more eager to vote on the Democratic agenda than we are, we should take a step back and ask ourselves whether we’re inadvertently letting the political battle play out on their turf rather than our own.”
