Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) blasted President Trump Wednesday for writing what Sanders called "blatant lies" in a USA Today op-ed that attacked Democrats who support "Medicare for All," reports The Hill.

"Bottom line is he's trying to frighten seniors and suggest that Medicare for all would cut back the benefits they have. The truth is it would expand the benefits that they have. ... His op-ed should not surprise the American people in that it is full of lies.”
