Sen. Bernie Sanders said to Jake Tapper on CNN:
"“This guy ran for president of the United States saying, ‘I’m going to take on Wall Street. These guys are getting away with murder.' And then, suddenly, he appoints all these billionaires. His major financial adviser comes from Goldman Sachs. And now he is going to dismantle legislation that protects consumers. . .
"This is a guy who ran for president saying, ‘I’m . . . not going to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. And then he appoints all of these guys who are precisely going to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. . . . I have to say this, Jake. And I don’t mean to be disrespectful . . . [but] this guy is a fraud."
Apparently in Trump's lexicon, there are two meanings to "take on." We naively thought he meant "take them on in a fight." But he "took them on" as members of his cabinet.
