Since 2018, Bernie has publicly taken on the CEOs of Amazon, Walmart, Delta, McDonald’s, and more — and he shows no sign of relenting. His willingness to pick fights with ultrarich executives paying poverty wages sets him apart from other Democratic candidates.
Bernie Sanders has a flair for naming and shaming the rich and powerful. Last month, when he faced criticism for his democratic socialist politics from Jamie Dimon, he responded on social media: “Jamie Dimon is the billionaire CEO of a Wall Street bank that was fined $13 billion for mortgage fraud, admitted to wrongly foreclosing on military officials, paid a settlement for bribing foreign officials and received a $416 billion taxpayer bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department.” He added sarcastically, “Jamie. Thanks so much for your advice.”
