Bernie Sanders hits 2020 trail with a return to Brooklyn roots

Bernie Sanders launches his Presidential campaign in Brooklyn Bernie Sanders launches his Presidential campaign in Brooklyn

The eyebrow-raising oversight was first by Paste Magazine, which accused CNN, in concert with the Democratic Party, of "stacking" the audience against Sanders by not being upfront about who was tasked with asking the senator questions.

Sanders, who competed for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2016 primaries, which were won by Hillary Clinton, began his second campaign on Saturday in NY where he addressed thousands of followers and vowed to defeat Trump, describing him as "very dangerous" for the nation.

"My experience as a child, living in a family that struggled economically, powerfully influenced my life and my values". "I know where I came from!" "And that is something I will never forget".

The rally took place at Brooklyn College and Sanders said he expects to win the Democratic nomination and then beat Donald Trump for the white house.

"Climate change is making extreme weather events, including tornadoes, worse", claimed the Vermont independent in a Facebook post on Monday, which linked to an EcoWatch article about the Lee County twister.

Sanders told the crowd, "We are here to tell the 1% that we will no longer tolerate 46% of all new income going to the very richest people in this country while millions of Americans are out working two or three jobs just to survive and pay the bills".

While delivering his speech, Sanders highlighted that he knows where he came from - "a lower middle class family", and continued with recollections from his past. Bernie Sanders is in Brooklyn to officially launch his campaign.

One of his newest campaign hires, deputy national press secretary Belén Sisa, won't even be able to vote for Sanders in 2020 because she is a self-admitted illegal immigrant. They feel that by not embracing the party label, Sanders sowed a sense that there wasn't much difference between the parties and, therefore, between Trump and Clinton.

He had begun his 2016 campaign in Vermont, which he has represented in the Senate for almost two decades.

The US also revoked the visas of 49 Venezuelan officials and their family members, the State Department said. Guaido did not say when exactly or how he would return to Venezuela.

Sanders has always used demagogic phrases to hide the class content of the issues that he very tentatively raises, and to disguise the central issue facing working people: the need to break with capitalist politics, including the Democratic Party, and build a mass independent political movement to fight the profit system.

But Sanders is part of a very crowded and diverse field of opponents - many of whom are decades younger than him.

When asked to clarify whether he would meet with Clinton, Sanders said, "I think not".

"The whole point of the political revolution is that nobody, not Bernie or anybody else, can do it alone", Sanders said Sunday. He said, "Have we made progress in civil rights in this country since the early 1960s?"

Matthew Smith, a resident of Chicago who came representing the group Socialist Alternative, told The Maroon after the rally, "People are getting excited about Bernie.so we're out here talking to people about how we can build the biggest fight back possible, to get Bernie in, to get Trump out, and push Bernie forward". On Thursday, he will hold a rally at Council Bluffs' Mid-America Center, an arena with a listed "concert capacity" of 8,000. Sisa, a millennial left-wing activist, has said her parents brought her illegally to the US from Argentina when she was six year old.

At the height of the Civil Rights Movement, the time I spent in Chicago changed my life and helped shape me into the person I am today.

"I think this was the reason that Democrats lost in 2016", he said.

Sander's Saturday speech saw various reactions among social media users. "We will not concede a single state to Donald Trump".
