As new polling data shows President Donald Trump\u0026#039;s support flagging in several electorally crucial Midwest states, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is gearing up for his three-state Midwest \u0022Pickup Tour,\u0022 which will aim to demonstrate that his ambitious progressive agenda—which includes a $15 federal minimum wage, Medicare for All, and tuition-free public college—has \u0022universal appeal.\u0022The tour is scheduled to begin on Monday in\u0026nbsp;Indianapolis, Indiana, where Sanders will join\u0026nbsp;former United Steelworkers Local 1999 President Chuck Jones at a rally focused primarily on jobs and income inequality.\u0022What we want to do is hold some of the politicians accountable for some of the campaign promises made and bring attention to the fact that something needs to change.\u0022\u0026nbsp;—Chuck Jones\u0022Elected officials and local activists will draw attention to the fact that Trump has failed to deliver on his promises to put workers first and stop the offshoring of American jobs,\u0022 Indiana Talks\u0026nbsp;noted in its summary of the tour\u0026#039;s objectives.Jones made headlines in December when he accused Trump of lying to Carrier workers about the number of jobs the company planned to keep in the country. Trump attacked Jones on Twitter, and Jones hit back with an op-ed in the Washington Post, accusing Trump of selling workers \u0022a false hope.\u0022On Monday, Jones plans to deliver a similar message.\u0022What we want to do is hold some of the politicians accountable for some of the campaign promises made and bring attention to the fact that something needs to change,\u0022 Jones told\u0026nbsp;USA Today.\u0026nbsp;\u0022No matter if it\u0026#039;s to Mexico or to China or to wherever, we are losing good-paying jobs, and some of these companies responsible are being rewarded with government contracts.\u0022Speaking to the\u0026nbsp;Washington Post, Sanders echoed Jones, saying: \u0022We\u0026#039;ve got a chance to be heard, and we\u0026#039;ve got to use that chance to explain what a progressive economic agenda is all about.\u0022\u0022We want a $15 minimum wage,\u0022 Sanders concluded. \u0022Donald Trump has said wages should be lower. And that\u0026#039;s our point.\u0022.@BernieSanders heads to Indiana, Ohio and Michigan to talk and listen to working class Americans.

John Conyers (D-Mich.), where the two congressmen will discuss single-payer healthcare.Conyers has introduced a Medicare for All bill every year since 2003. But this year is different, he has said.\u0022I have never seen more enthusiasm and energy behind this issue than what I\u0026#039;m seeing today,\u0022 Conyers observed.\u0022We want a $15 minimum wage. Donald Trump has said wages should be lower. And that\u0026#039;s our point.\u0022\u0026nbsp;—Sen. Bernie SandersMuch of the recent enthusiasm for single payer emerged during the struggle against the Republican Party\u0026#039;s attempt to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Over the last several months, polls have shown support for single payer surging, and Sanders is looking to capitalize on this moment, particularly in areas Trump won in November.\u0022Now is the time for us to summon the courage to create a healthcare system which benefits all Americans, and not just those who make billions off of the current wasteful, bureaucratic, and dysfunctional system,\u0022 Sanders wrote in a recent op-ed for\u0026nbsp;The Guardian.\u0026nbsp;Sanders is reportedly planning to introduce Medicare for All legislation when Congress returns from recess in September.
