Bernie Sanders is considering to set up in 2020 again as a candidate in the presidential election in the US. He want to do that ‘as he is the best placed’ to the Republican Donald Trump to fight, he declared to New York Magazine.
Sanders was in the previous elections two years ago, the candidate for the Democrats, but in the end had to be defeated against Hillary Clinton. They lost to Donald Trump. Sanders sits now as an independent in the U.s. Congress and was at the mid-term elections re-elected.
He does not exclude the re-a candidate will propose, for lack of anything better. ‘If it turns out that I am the best candidate to Trump to fight, then I’ll probably be a candidate. But if someone else pops up who for one reason or another, could do better than myself, then I will do everything to ensure that he or she is elected”, said the 77-year-old senator from Vermont. He pointed out that he is not miljonairskind of whom the parents want him to be president of the united states. ‘I get up in the morning with the burning desire to be president’.
“There are also other very good candidates, many of whom are my personal friends. I think that what is more important is that Trump is defeated, his hateful rhetoric and divisiveness, and that we respectfully come together as a nation.’
