Both Trump and Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) have tapped into the anger felt by many middle-class Americans who have only grown poorer while the corporate class grows staggeringly richer.

The candidates differ on who’s to blame — Sanders indicts corporate billionaires and Wall Street while Trump lays blame on immigrants and foreigners — but both seem to agree that decades of American trade policies have only hurt the poor and middle class. 

Trump said he would sidestep using executive orders, but would instead work hard and “cajole” Congress to come to his way of thinking. 

“We are killing ourselves with trade pacts that are no good for us and no good for our workers,” Trump said. 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynistbirther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
