Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders slammed Joe Biden last week as an “extreme liberal” who wants to force taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
Speaking with Fox News, Sanders pointed out how radical and out of touch the leading Democratic presidential candidate’s positions are, the Daily Wire reports.
“Anybody who’s been paying attention to Joe Biden on the campaign trail – and frankly, and on the debate stage – knows he’s been a terrible candidate,” Sanders said. “But anybody who’s been listening to him state his policy positions knows he’s extremely liberal and would make an even more dangerous and terrible president.”
Sanders said Biden is not a moderate, despite what he may claim.
“He supports taxpayer-funded abortion, free healthcare for illegals, wants to eliminate fracking, supports the Green New Deal, which would kill millions of jobs,” she said. “He’s fighting against the Second Amendment.”
Though Biden may have been more moderate on the abortion issue decades ago, he is not anymore. On Sunday, he confirmed his support for taxpayer-funded abortions during the CNN debate.
Sanders said Biden cannot claim he is a moderate “by any stretch of the imagination” – especially when polls consistently showing strong opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions.
“He is an extreme liberal, and he is going to be just as easy for the president to beat as Bernie Sanders,” she continued. “It’ll be a very different campaign, but I still think Donald Trump is in a great position.”

Trump has worked to cut taxpayer funding to the abortion industry. Biden said he would not only restore those cuts but also expand funding to the billion-dollar abortion industry.
A former senator from Delaware, Biden has a long record of supporting abortion on demand. However, he did used to support the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer-funded abortions through Medicaid.
Last May, however, Biden made it clear that he now opposes the Hyde Amendment and would force Americans to fund abortions if elected president. Since then, he has reiterated that stance continuously.
On Sunday, Biden said he changed his position, because “if we’re going to have public funding for all healthcare along the line, there is no way you could allow for there to be a requirement that you have Hyde Amendment – a woman who doesn’t have the money could not have coverage under healthcare.”
Abortion is not healthcare. It is the killing of unborn babies, and most Americans support strong limits on abortion.
A 2019 poll conducted by Marist University found an overwhelming majority of Americans support restrictions on abortion. It also found that three-quarters (75 percent) of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion abroad, while fewer than two in 10 (19 percent) support such funding. Opposition to this funding includes most Republicans (94 percent) and independents (80 percent) and a majority of Democrats (56 percent). By a double-digit margin, a majority of all Americans oppose any taxpayer funding of abortion (54 percent to 39 percent), according to the poll.
Bernie Sanders also supports abortions without restriction through all nine months of pregnancy and want to force taxpayers to pay for them.
