Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took to the Senate floor on Wednesday where he called out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for voting against giving Americans a $2,000 stimulus check, despite Donald Trump urging Republicans to do so.

“If you want to vote against $2,000 check for people in your state, votes against it,” Sanders said.

Sanders went on to use Trump’s own tweets to call out McConnell.

“We have a very unlikely ally in President Trump,” Sanders said.

“Nobody here has disagreed with Trump more times than I have, and yet here is what the leader of the Republican Party says,” Sanders continued, pointing to a Trump tweet that read, “$2,000 ASAP!”

“So even on this issue, amazingly enough, the President of the United States is right,” Sanders said.
