Bernie Sanders Says Presidential Run in 2020 Is Possible
In an interview on SiriusXM radio, Senator Bernie Sanders says that a presidential run in 2020 “is not off the table”. For me, this is some of the best news I’ve heard in while. Even though Bernie Sanders will be 79 years old in 2020, I still think he will be the best candidate that any party can come up with, especially the Democrats.
Right now, I can’t think of another Democrat, except for the possibility of Elizabeth Warren or Al Franken that could make just as good of a presidential run. Bernie Sanders is the best chance that the Democratic Party stands for a presidential win if he chooses to run again under the Democratic Party banner. If he chooses another party to run under, who can blame him, especially after the way he was treated by the Democratic Party leadership, especially Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Hillary Clinton. As far as I’m concerned, I still think they both owe Bernie Sanders an apology after their shoddy treatment of both him and his candidacy.
Senator Bernie Sanders, in this interview, points out that President Donald Trump is the representative of the “billionaire class” and not the middle class. A truer statement was never spoken, as far as I’m concerned. I totally agree with Senator Sanders on this point. Since the beginning of his presidency, Donald Trump has done nothing for the working man, but he has done plenty to further the interests of the wealthiest 1% of Americans.
Senator Bernie Sanders also points out that he still is going to try to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour. I’m very glad he still maintains this position and it is very unlikely that he will falter from it. There will never be any type of real equality in this country as far as many Americans still work for less than a living wage. The workers of this country do not deserve to continue to be unrecognized, unappreciated, and uncompensated.
Senator Bernie Sanders can count on me to be one of his staunchest supporters, just as I was in 2016. He is the type of person we deserve to have as President of the United States, not the rich martinet we are now stuck with.
