- “I have no understanding of the corona virus, but I expect that it will be resolved within three or four months,” said Cooperman

Hedge fund billionaire Leon Cooperman compared Senator Bernie Sanders Tuesday with the corona virus and said he believes Investors should be more concerned about the impact of a Sanders presidency on the fatal disease.
Sanders identifies himself as a democratic socialist who, according to Cooperman, could adversely affect the stock market.
“I see Bernie Sanders as a bigger threat [to the stock market] then the corona virus, “Cooperman said as he spoke CNBC.
“I have no understanding of the corona virus, but I assume, with all the great minds of the world focused on this problem, that it will be solved within three or four months.”

But ‘there are things that worry me a lot. Nr. 1 is Bernie Sanders, “Cooperman said.
“He is not a socialist. He is rather a communist. … I just hope the country is not ready to choose a communist or a socialist. If we do that, I think the market is facing a major problem. “
Sanders was in the lead in most national Democratic primary polls prior to Wednesday’s debate after winning a victory over Buttigieg in New Hampshire’s primary primary week.

In October, the 76-year-old billionaire said the market would probably crash by 25% if Sanders or Senator Elizabeth Warren won the Democratic nomination.
Cooperman came on Elizabeth Warren’s radar last October when he spoke to Politico for a story about how American business fears her.
“I believe in a progressive income tax and the rich who pay more,” Cooperman said Politics. “But this is the American dream she’s fucking.”
Warren shot back via Twitter and then Cooperman sent her an open letter.

Cooperman beat the liberal democrat for her “defamation of the rich” and said Warren “has shown a fundamental misunderstanding about who I am, what I stand for and why I believe so many of your economic policy initiatives are misleading.”
“The world is a substantially better place because of Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, David Rubenstein, Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone,” said Cooperman, with the names of some of the world’s most famous billionaires.
“This is idiocy. This one is appealing to the smallest common denominator and is actually trying to turn people’s heads by actually promising many free things. That world does not exist, “he said.
“I’m going to give it all away, so she chooses the wrong man,” Cooperman said before adding that Warren’s “wealth tax is crazy.”
