Former NY Governor Warns Biden is Influenced in 'Significant Ways' by Leftists
George Pataki says Biden is being influenced by Bernie Sanders and AOC
Former New York Governor George Pataki (R) warned that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is being influenced by radical leftists.
Republican Pataki (R), who ran for president in 2015, said the former Vice President is significantly influenced by leftist activists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders.
“I’ve been disappointed by the ability of the leftist activists in the party like Bernie Sanders and [Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez to apparently influence him in real and significant ways,” Pataki said according to The New York Post.
“The Biden, who was the moderate Democrat for a long time serving in Congress, might not be the Biden who we would see as president,” he added.
In May, a source told CNN that the Biden has kept Ocasio-Cortez as a climate change task-force co-chair.
Biden's move seemed to be to build credibility with the far Left.
Additionally, Biden also joined forces with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to create a “Unity” task-force, which would push the Democratic platform even further to the Left.
For example, the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations aim to grant a pathway to U.S. citizenship for 22 million illegal aliens.
Sharing the same notion, Vice President Mike Pence also warned Biden was being used as “a Trojan horse” to deliver a radical far-left agenda.
“Our economic recovery is on the ballot, but also are things much more fundamental and foundational to our country,” Pence warned.

“It’s not so much whether America will be more conservative or more liberal, more Republican or Democrat, more red or blue," he added.
“I thought Joe Biden won the Democrat primaries, but looking at their unity agenda, it looks to me like Bernie won,” Pence said.
Recently, a leftist video producer was hired by the Biden campaign, who called police officers worse than pigs while regularly using the “Defund The Police” hashtag, Fox News reported.
President Donald Trump warned of the consequences if Biden wins the election.
"The whole country will be Minneapolis," Trump said.
"I feel that if the Democrats get in, we are literally going to end up in a recession/depression the likes of which you’ve never seen."
"It will be a tremendous negative growth."
