Claim: Former mayor Michael Bloomberg said during Wednesday’s Democrat debate in Las Vegas, Nevada, that the country’s best-known socialist, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), “happens to be a millionaire with three houses.”
Sanders is a millionaire, and the senator himself admitted during this exchange that he owns three homes, including a vacation home in Vermont’s Champlain Islands.
Bloomberg slammed Sanders during the Vermont socialist’s defense of socialism during Wednesday evening’s debate in Las Vegas, noting that Sanders is a “millionaire with three houses.”
Sanders does, in fact, own three homes, including lakefront property in the Champlain Islands.
Bloomberg is also correct in noting Sanders’ millionaire status.
