During a recent campaign event, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders shed some light on his plans for the trucking industry.
In the short clip, which can seen above, Sanders promised to “do great things” if elected president, including “creating a state of the art rail system which takes trucks off the road.”
The crowd at the event responded with thunderous applause.
Several drivers immediately contacted us, expressing concern over the statements. “This guy has to be stopped” said one reader.
What do you think?
Is it political rhetoric used to excite uninformed followers, or will the trucking industry be significantly downsized under a Sanders’ presidency? Let us know your thoughts on Facebook and in the comments below.
