Cozen O’Connor: Mark Alderman Comments on the President's Tribute to Dallas Police and the Sanders Endorsement

Mark Alderman Comments on the President's Tribute to Dallas Police and the Sanders Endorsement

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Mark Alderman, chairman of Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, appeared on Fox Business Network’s Making Money with Charles Payne, speaking on two separate topics.

Mark first commented on President Obama’s tribute to the Dallas police alongside former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, radio talk show host Tammy Bruce and a GOP strategist. While the other participants offered critique of the President's response, Mark said that "majority of his speech was pitch perfect" and addressed the necessary issues at hand that are the “responsibility of a leader." When questioned by the host about partisan accusations that have emerged in discussions surrounding the events in Dallas, Mark said, “I think that [there] is a valid point on both sides of the political divide and that the American heart is big enough to mourn both sides. We have to stop this left [vs.] right rhetoric and include everyone in this conversation." To view the full segment, click here

Mark then discussed Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Clinton and the effect Sanders may have had on the Democratic platform with Tammy Bruce and a Republican and Democrat strategist. When asked if Sanders' policy has pushed Hillary Clinton's platform further left, Mark responded, "All of this rhetoric about a dramatic move to the left is overrated. A $15 minimum wage is not Venezuela; it is something supported by many American people.” In regards to her health care policy, Mark explained that “her program is a position she took in 1992. These are not radical positions.” To view the entire segment, see here.
