Are you ready to feel the BERN?!
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has officially announced he’s running for president in 2020. This will be Sanders’ second consecutive run as the Democratic nomination. Bernie fell short in his run against fellow Democrat, Hilary Clinton in 2016.
Sanders wrote an email, and had an interview on Vermont Public Radio to announce his presidential run. When asked about our current president, Bernie had some words.
Bernie described Trump as, “a pathological liar, a fraud, a racist, a sexist, a xenophobe and someone who is undermining American democracy as he leads us in an authoritarian direction.”
He began to discuss his goals, and details of the upcoming campaign.
Bernie states, “It is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice.”
Bernie also had a message, “They may have the money and the power. We have the people.”
We have the power too though! As long as we all go out and vote!
