Bernie Sanders: I Would Join Biden Cabinet As Labor Secretary If I Could Fight For Working Families

|

Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) tells CNN's Wolf Blitzer that President Donald Trump's refusal to concede the election an "outrage" and talks about possibly being Secretary of Labor in a Biden administration.


BLITZER: We'll see if that unfolds.

Now, before I let you go, Senator, let me ask you about these reports, and I'm sure you've seen them that potentially you might be eyeing a position in President-elect Biden's cabinet labor secretary, for example. Is that true?

SANDERS: Well, what's true is I want to do everything I can to protect the working families of this country who are under tremendous duress right now, whether that's in the Senate, whether that's in the Biden administration, who knows? Well, let's see how that unfolds.

BLITZER: But if he asked you to join the cabinet as labor secretary, would you say yes?

SANDERS: If I had a portfolio that allowed me to stand up and fight for working families, would I do it? Yes, I would.

BLITZER: All right, Senator Sanders, maybe I'll call you Mr. Secretary one of these days, thanks so much for joining us.

SANDERS: Thank you, Wolf.
