In a Monday tweet, 2016 presidential candidate Bobby Jindal stated that a presidency of Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton would result in the nation following in Greece’s footsteps to economic turmoil.
The Louisiana governor, who formally announced his bid for the presidency in late June, slammed two of the Democratic frontrunners over the failure of Greece’s economy and its similarity to progressive economic programs.
Sunday, Jindal made a splash for comments accusing President Barack Obama and Clinton’s policies of being socialist and progressive.
“I’m running [for president] because I want to stop President Obama and Secretary Clinton from turning the American dream into the European nightmare,” Jindal said on John Catsimatidis’s New York-based radio show. “We are on the path towards socialism. It’s not too late, but the hour is late.”
Jindal also attacked Jeb Bush for not standing up for conservatism. Fellow governor and presidential candidate Bush suggested that Republicans might have to “lose the primary to win the general election, which prompted Jindal to defend his fellow candidates.
“I think we need to be who we are; we need to be fearless,” Jindal said. “I disagree with Jeb Bush. He said we have to be willing to lose the primary to win the general election. Let me translate — he’s saying we need to hide our conservative ideas.”
