Self-declared ‘Democratic Socialist’ Senator Bernie Sanders intends to run for President again in 2020. He announced it this morning during an interview with Vermont Public Radio.
Mr Sanders told Vermont’s Public Radio: “I wanted to let the people of the state of Vermont know about this first. And what I promise to do is, as I go around the country, is to take the values that all of us in Vermont are proud of — a belief in justice, in community, in grassroots politics, in town meetings — that’s what I’m going to carry all over this country.”
“I think the current occupant of the White House is an embarrassment to our country,” Sanders said. “I think he is a pathological liar… I also think he is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe, somebody who is gaining cheap political points by trying to pick on minorities, often undocumented immigrants.”
Mr Sanders vowed to fight for universal health care coverage, a $15 minimum wage and reducing student debt.
