During Trump’s State of the Union, he attacked socialism and said, “We are born free, and we will stay free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.” Apparently, Bernie Sanders wasn’t listening or chose to ignore this. And for that, he will pay.
In an early morning email, Bernie Sanders announced that he would once again run for president in the 2020 election.
“I am writing to let you know I have decided to run for president of the United States,” the email begins, “I am asking you to join me today as part of an unprecedented and historic grassroots campaign that will begin with at least a million people from across the country.”
Sanders was nearly the candidate Trump had to face in 2016, with the Vermont senator just barely losing out to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.
Sanders is largely considered the one responsible for spawning the left’s socialist movement. It appears he intends on running on the same backwards thinking as before.
“Three years ago, during our 2016 campaign, when we brought forth our progressive agenda we were told that our ideas were ‘radical’ and ‘extreme,’” wrote Sanders. “We were told that Medicare for All, a $15 an hour minimum wage, free tuition at public colleges and universities, aggressively combating climate change, demanding that the wealthy start paying their fair share of taxes, were all concepts that the American people would never accept.”
With Sanders being unable to best even Hillary Clinton, he doesn’t stand a chance against the powerhouse that is President Trump. Hopefully though, he can cause some division among the Democrats voting base.
