I see Donald Trump as a symptom of a problem that has been brewing for a long time. The real problem is the corporate takeover of the Democratic Party and no one symbolizes that takeover more than Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi is a stanch Neoliberal who takes money from the military industrial complex, oil industry, the healthcare lobby, the real-estate lobby and basically whomever has an agenda they are willing to pay for. Case and point: when the Republicans are in charge of the Congress, they pass tax breaks for their donors, but when Nancy Pelosi takes charge she pushes through Pay-Go legislation in an blatant attempt to block any Progressive legislation she wants to block. Tax breaks for the rich, austerity for the poor. These types of policies are what helped the Democrats lose over 1000 seats nation wide after the democratic majorities lead by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in January 2009. If we do not replace Nancy Pelosi in 2020 Bernie Sanders will be hamstrung by his own party. This is why Shahid vs Pelosi 2020 is so important. You can read more in an article written by Shahid.
