Bernie Sanders Says He’ll Likely Run For President In 2020 If He’s The ‘Best Candidate’ To Beat Trump
Senator Bernie Sanders says he plans to run for President again in 2020 if he thinks he’s the best candidate to beat #Trump.
He revealed this in an interview with Intelligencer when he said,
“If there’s somebody else who appears who can, for whatever reason, do a better job than me, I’ll work my a** off to elect him or her…But if it turns out that I am the best candidate to beat Donald Trump, then I will probably run.”
Sanders was one of the front runners for the Democratic party in the 2016 presidential election and was a favorite among social activists and celebrities including #ChrisBrown, Miley Cyrus, TI and Rae Sremmurd. He ultimately lost the bid to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries.
Apparently Sanders made similar remarks last week when he said his team was “looking at” the possibility of a 2020 run. What’s clear is Sanders believes Trump MUST be defeated.
He has often described himself as a democratic socialist and has been one of Trump’s most outspoken critics. He referred to Trump as the “most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history.”
