Former labor secretary Robert Reich appeared on PBS’s Tavis Smiley Monday evening. At one point during the wide-ranging interview, Smiley asked Reich, “Can you imagine any candidate in the field right now — Republican, Democrat, independent, third party — can you imagine any candidate in the field right now, maybe Jill Stein if she becomes the Green Party nominee, maybe Bernie Sanders,” saying they would use their presidential “authority to break up the big banks?”
Reich replied, “Well, it depends on who you ask. I think Bernie Sanders has made it very clear that he would. Maybe Jill Stein as well.”
Stein recently appeared on Smiley’s program.
