A day after the first 2020 Democratic candidates’ debate on MSNBC, Donald Trump Jr. slammed both Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden as hypocrites.
“Who’s the biggest hypocrite?” Don Jr. asked Thursday on Twitter.
“A socialist who makes millions through capitalism or a “government reformer” who’s never had a job outside of government?” he added.

“In the year 2019 in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, we have got to conclude that economic rights are human rights. And that’s what democratic socialism means to me,” he said.
However, Sanders has clearly enjoyed the benefits of capitalism, as he raked in more than a million dollars from the sale of his book.
When The New York Times confronted Sanders about his massive amount of wealth, he seemed to have inadvertently championed capitalism.
“I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too,” he said.
For former Vice President Joe Biden, being a part of the government has always been a way of life.
Biden briefly worked four years as an attorney before jumping into politics in 1970, when he won his first election to the New Castle County Council.
Two years later, Biden defeated Republican incumbent J. Caleb Boggs and began his long career as a U.S. senator.
Biden would go on to win re-election time and again, serving 36 years in the Senate and eventually as vice president under Barack Obama.
Additionally, Biden launched a presidential bid in June 1987 but quickly bowed out after word got out that he exaggerated his academic credentials.
