Sanders Says His Campaign Built To Beat Trump

Bernie Sanders presses President Trump’s EPA pick Andrew Wheeler on climate change

I know where I came from.

"And that is something I will never forget", he said to an audience who broke out with chants of "Bernie, Bernie, Bernie".

Noting that ideas previously characterized as "crazy and extreme" by the Democratic establishment are now considered mainstream, Sanders declared, "We are now on the brink of not just winning an election, but transforming this country".

Jeff Weaver, a top adviser to Sanders, said the weekend's events were "an attempt to draw a connection between Bernie Sanders' life story and the policy agenda that he is putting forward in the campaign".

The Vermont independent voiced confidence at the address in the NY borough of Brooklyn that he would first beat the crowded field of his rivals for the 2020 nomination, with much of his liberal, populist agenda now considered mainstream Democratic policy.

Sanders did not support reparations during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Sanders also opened up Saturday about being the son of an immigrant whose family members were killed in the Holocaust.

He recalled his mother, who died soon after Sanders began college, and her dream - unrealized - of moving to "a home of our own".

"It's his journey to this moment that makes me trust this man with our future", said King, who noted Sanders' father narrowly escaped the Holocaust while his two uncles an aunt and cousin didn't make it. "That would not be true".

"Any legislation you can point to?"

In speaking about his upbringing, Sanders contrasted his humble beginnings to Trump's reportedly affluent youth in Queens.

The revolution that Sanders and his supporters seek, as the candidate detailed in his speech, requires standing up to Wall Street, the fossil fuel industry, the pharmaceutical companies, and so many other special interests who use money to influence American politics. His campaign raised almost $6 million in the first 24 hours after Sanders announced from more than 223,000 individuals.

"So I think I have a long history in civil rights activism", Sanders said.

"I want him to talk about that all of these things that he wants to do are possible", she said. "But Hillary and I have, you know, fundamental differences and that's what it is", he added. Without knowing one word of English.

"Three years ago, they thought we were kind of insane and extreme, not the case anymore", he said.

However, Sanders did not pull punches when talking about the current president.

Republican National Committee spokesperson Kevin Knoth said in a statement: "Bernie Sanders is holding a rally in Chicago this evening with a platform to hike taxes to absurd levels at the expense of our economy and fellow Americans".

"This is not some exaggerated myth".

While he is not now supporting Sanders in the Democratic primary, Zhang did not want to miss the opportunity to see a major politician. In an interview before the trip, campaign co-chair Nina Turner described Sanders' task almost a year out from the Iowa caucuses as "layering on top of what he did in 2016".

Earlier on Sunday, Sanders attended a breakfast in Selma, Alabama, commemorating the 1965 civil rights march that ended in a violent police assault.
