'Saudi Arabia First': Trump Accused of Letting Saudis Dictate US Foreign Policy After Oil Facility Attack "Congress will not give you the authority to start another disastrous war in the Middle East just because the brutal Saudi dictatorship told you to," said Sanders.

Part of it is the hypocrisy. He criticizes the rich, but is part of the 1%. He has multiple homes, and has very nice cars. I don't mind him having money, but coming up with speeches that are essentially criticizing himself puts me off. He also (hilariously) stopped calling out "millionaires" now that he is one. He specifically criticizes "billionaires" exclusively now.

The second thing is that he was the front runner in 2016. He had more votes in the primaries, but the DNC swindled it away from him. Instead of saying anything he threw all of his support behind Hillary Clinton. I understand loyalty, but not when the organization is not supporting the people's choice. If he had run against Trump I most likely would have voted for him.

Lastly, he supports redistribution of wealth. I don't believe that taking money from anybody who worked for it to give to people who did not work for it is ever going to be a successful policy. It become a disincentive to achieve. Much like how our welfare program currently works. It provides a certain amount of money, but as your income goes up, the welfare goes down until it completely phases out. Why would you want to work harder to make the same amount of money that the government will give you for doing nothing?

Also, I'm not a big fan of Bernie supporters. Most that I have met only care that he is legalizing pot, or getting them out of some sort of responsibility like student loans, charity work, or paying for medical insurance. There are many that are different I'm sure, but that is all I have had to experience.
