In her "Final Thoughts" commentary on Fox Nation, Tomi Lahren slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders' "free everything" policies, warning they are a "socialist trap" for voters.
Sanders (I-Vt.) announced Tuesday he is entering the crowded 2020 Democratic primary field, vowing to pursue progressive policies such as universal health care and a $15 minimum wage.
Tomi warned that Sanders' "big government love affair" would undo virtually all of the Trump administration's accomplishments.
"Taxes will go up, regulations will be reinstated, borders will become even weaker, personal independence and liberty down the toilet," Tomi said. "That agenda, modeled after socialism, doesn’t work."
She added that the term "Democratic socialist" is an oxymoron, saying, "'Democratic' and 'socialist' do not fit together, and they never will."
She said many on the left support the idea of "free everything" -- including health care and college -- but nothing is really "free" if their tax-paying neighbors have to fund it.
"There is no such thing as a free lunch," Tomi said. "If someone, like Bernie, tries to convince you it’s possible, understand this: the promise of free things and shared burdens are the cheese in the socialist trap."
Sanders emerged in 2016 as the main challenger to eventual nominee Hillary Clinton, finishing second after winning 23 state contests.
