Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders claimed Saturday that “no one wants” a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Sanders tweeted Saturday:
I’m not sure why President Trump wants to shut down the government over an $18 billion wall that no one wants, isn’t needed and Mexico won’t pay for. What the American people want, overwhelmingly, is to provide legal protection and a path toward citizenship for 800,000 Dreamers.

The socialist senator did not provide any data to back this claim up. Donald Trump won the 2016 election by promising in part to build a wall, so it’s unclear what Sanders was referring to. (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Releases Odd Video Of Rich Men Asking For More Taxes)
Sanders makes active use of his Twitter account and called the GOP tax cuts “looting” in December. This prompted Donald Trump Jr. to tweet at him, “I’m still trying to figure out how letting Americans keep more of THEIR money is looting… but you know logic and such is long gone with the libs. Also socialists likely shouldn’t talk about looting and history in the same sentence.” (RELATED: Don Jr. Savages Bernie Sanders After He Calls GOP Tax Cuts ‘Looting)
