Bernie Sanders is entering the presidential race once again. This will be his second time seeking the Democratic presidential nomination after losing to Hillary Clinton back in 2016.
According to NBC News, Bernie made the announcement on Tuesday as he vowed to finish what he started in his first race.
In a video announcing his candidacy, he said, “Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution. Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for.”
He first confirmed his second run on Vermont Public Radio as he promised to “take the values that all of us in Vermont are proud of — a belief in justice, in the community, in grassroots politics, in town meetings — that’s what I’m going to carry all over this country.”
Sanders’ agenda still includes “Medicare for All to a $15 minimum wage to free college tuition.”
Bernie has never held back when it came to criticizing the current president, Donald Trump. In an interview with “CBS This Morning,” he 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.”
When asked how his campaign will be different this time around, he said, “We’re gonna win.”
It was previously reported that Kamala Harris and Cory Booker will also run for president.
I'm running for president. I am asking you to join me today as part of an unprecedented and historic grassroots campaign that will begin with at least 1 million people from across the country. Say you're in: https://t.co/KOTx0WZqRf pic.twitter.com/T1TLH0rm26
