“Obviously, we have to beat Trump, but if we beat Trump and go back to the same policies that we had before, a worse Trump is going to come. A Trump that’s more sophisticated, whose fascism is less obvious, is going to come, and things could get even worse,” Ocasio-Cortez, a prominent campaign surrogate for Sen.

“We lived under his tenure as mayor. We know exactly what he did, and this is part of what he’s doing, when he comes in, swoops in super late in the game, with billions of dollars at his disposal and is able to shower the airwaves with his cash,” she said. “People see what he’s done with his money … without seeing what he’s actually done with his power.”
Sanders has increasingly traded barbs with Bloomberg, who is not competing in any of the four early voting states and is instead focusing on Super Tuesday to establish himself as the centrist alternative to the Vermont senator. Bloomberg’s campaign recently seized on comments Sanders made over the weekend noting the success of Cuba’s literacy programs under Fidel Castro. Sanders also condemned Castro’s authoritarianism.
