Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is denouncing the influence of “big money” in American politics. On Friday, Sanders took a swipe at his political rivals Michael Bloomberg and President Trump, saying they have billions of dollars to spend on their campaigns.

He said he is proud of the six million contributions he has already received, which averaged less than $20 dollars each. The senator also called on the nation’s working class for support.

“Which side are you on?” asked Sanders. “Are you willing to take on the greed and corruption of the billionaire class and the one percent?”

His remarks come ahead of next Tuesday’s Democrat primary in New Hampshire, where he’s currently leading in some polls. Sanders reportedly retained 12 primary delegates following this week’s Iowa caucus.

At the most recent Democrat debate, the senator called out fellow presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who he claimed “gets a lot of money” from billionaires.

“Billionaires, by the dozen, are contributing to Pete Buttigieg’s campaign. Now, I like Pete. He’s a smart guy, he’s a nice guy. But if we are serious about political change in America, that change is not going to be coming from somebody who gets a lot of money from the CEOs of the pharmaceutical industry.” – Bernie Sanders, (D-VT.)

Meanwhile, the premier of Ontario, Canada, has said Sanders’ presidential campaign is “scary.” Doug Ford slammed the senator on Friday, saying socialism and high taxes don’t work.

“Could you do me a favor and talk to Bernie Sanders about whether or not socialism works?” he asked. “That’s actually scary.”

He said he hopes this year’s presidential election in the U.S. “goes the right way,” and added, “literally, the right way.”

“You know, I always say socialism doesn’t work, raising taxes does not work,” said Ford. “Lowering taxes with people and with businesses, that’s how we thrive in our province and right across in the United States.”

President Trump recently highlighted the latest commentary on U.S. partisan politics from his counselor Kellyanne Conway. On Thursday, he retweeted Conway’s latest op-ed in the Washington Post and noted that the Trump administration has transformed America’s political party system.

Conway argued Republicans are now a party of youthful energy and practical solutions, while the Democrats have completely devolved into “old-guard sclerosis.” She said up until 2016, the roles of two major parties were the exact opposite.

President Trump agreed with Conway and said the Democrat Party has made itself irrelevant.

“It’s a whole hoax, it’s called the impeachment hoax, and we’ve had it from the beginning,” stated the president. “From the day I got elected this was going on.”

The White House counselor went on to say Democrat 2020 candidates have no policy agenda except “beating Donald Trump,” or least attempting to.

President Trump is urging Americans to read the transcripts of his calls with his Ukrainian counterpart, while also slamming the Democrats’ impeachment push. In a tweet Monday, the president called the inquiry “the greatest con job in the history of American politics.”

This comes as the House Judiciary Committee officially released its impeachment report against the president. The more than 600 page document was uploaded online and released to the House on Monday. It lays out everything from the constitutional grounds for impeachment to the committee’s findings and justifications behind their push to move forward.

The document stops short of calling for President Trump’s impeachment, however, it does ask members to determine whether the president abused his power with evidence broken down into four overarching parts. Congress will review the report ahead of Wednesday’s scheduled vote on the House floor.
