Sen. Bernie Sanders is back for a second time! This will be Sanders second consecutive bid for the presidential elections after running against Hilary Clinton for the democratic nominee in 2016

Bernie enters the run as a popular candidate. Many gained respect for him and his views after he was out of the last election, so I’m interested to see how this time around goes for him. He has been embraced by many Democratic party leaders, with his political agenda featuring proposals to expand health care, broaden the social safety net and make higher education free.

In his announcement video, Sanders described Trump as “a pathological liar, a fraud, a racist, a sexist, a xenophobe and someone who is undermining American democracy as he leads us in an authoritarian direction”

“Our campaign,” he said, “is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice.”
