Bernie Sanders jumps into the 2020 US presidential race

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced on Tuesday that he was jumping into the 2020 presidential race, putting to rest months of speculation over whether he would once again seek the Democratic nomination after an unsuccessful bid in 2016.


“I wanted to let the people of the state of Vermont know about this first,” Sanders said during an interview on Vermont Public radio. “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.”

“We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it’s time to move that revolution forward,” Sanders added. Sanders in the interview described President Trump as “an embarrassment to our country.”

“I think he is a pathological liar,” he added. “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.”

He also announced his White House bid in a video posted to Twitter early Tuesday. READ HERE THE REST OF THE ARTICLE
