Sanders sends warning to 2020 rivals with rollicking weekend rallies

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., hugs his wife Jane after he finished speaking Saturday, March 2, 2019, in the Brooklyn borough of NY.

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.

Sanders, an independent from Vermont who is seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination, spoke to a crowd of around 13,000 supporters at Brooklyn College, according to a campaign estimate, mentioning his experiences growing up in the city and contrasting his background with Trump.

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., speaks about his new book, "Where We Go From Here: Two Years in the Resistance", at a George Washington University/Politics and Prose event in Washington.

The Vermont senator has always seemed more in his element when discussing policy.

Then Sanders pivoted to contrast his humble beginnings with those of Donald Trump, whose father gave him millions, he said, to build "luxury skyscrapers, casinos and country clubs". "You know, I think every Democrat is going to come together".

Bernie Sanders launched his 2016 presidential campaign from Vermont, the state he's represented in the Senate for almost two decades.

With U.S. government deficits increasing again and big spending plans coming from potential Democratic presidential candidates, we thought it would be prudent to have a conversation with Stephanie Kelton.

Throughout Harris's 2020 campaign kick off, which took place on January 27 in Oakland California, several commentators took note of the size of the crowd.

Brown attended a Darlington County Democratic women's event, and said he values the important role that black women play in the nominating process.

Sanders fought Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016, and there are still raw feelings in both camps after the bitterly contested race.

King cited Sanders' participation in the civil rights movement in the 1960s, when he was a student at the University of Chicago. Speaking to the BBC, Mr Sanders's brother Larry said the Vermont senator was right to try again for the presidency. During his 2016 race, Sanders opened two Brooklyn campaign offices, one in Gowanus and Flatbush.

"The principles of our government will be based on justice, on economic justice, on social justice, on racial justice, and environmental justice". After that, Sanders heads to Chicago for a Sunday nightrally at Navy Pier.

"I did not come from a family of privilege that prepared me to entertain people on television by telling workers, 'You're fired, '" Sanders said, using Trump's tagline from The Apprentice.

The U.S. senator from MA said she had followed Pence's history on LGBTQ rights and that she didn't think it was a "decent position".

"Three years ago, they thought we were kind of insane and extreme, not the case anymore", he said. Sanders promised police reform "led at the federal level, which says that lethal force is the last resort, not the first".
