Bernie Sanders Spends Over $1 Million on Private Jet Travel

The 2020 presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) has reportedly spent over $1 million on private jet travel in the last quarter of 2019, more so than any other candidate, according to The Daily Caller.

The campaign spent just under $1.2 million on travel arrangements with Apollo Jets LLC, which is described as a “luxury private jet charter service,” as well as nearly $24,000 to Advanced Aviation Team, another private jet service based in Virginia.

This revelation stands in stark contrast to Sanders’ rhetoric on the campaign trail, as he claims that global warming is a major issue. He has proposed legislation that would restrict Americans’ use of traditional fuel sources in order to reduce the country’s carbon emissions, and has come out in support of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) radical “Green New Deal” plan.

Sanders is currently the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, after surging in the polls in Iowa and holding a clear lead in New Hampshire and California, among other contests. The Iowa Caucuses will be held tonight.
