Bernie Sanders joins 2020 race, to defeat ‘racist’ Donald Trump

Sen. Bernie Sanders More

Senator Bernie Sanders received $5.9 million from about 223,000 donors in the 24 hours after he announced his repeat bid for the USA presidency.

The Vermont independent, who again will seek to become the Democratic Party nominee, more than doubled the $1.5 million that Senator Kamala Harris raised from roughly 38,000 donors in the first 24 hours of her January 21 presidential campaign launch. Harris had been the largest first-day fundraiser among the ever-expanding field of 2020 Democrats.

The Vermont senator's campaign raised $1 million from people in all 50 states in less than four hours after Sanders announced his bid.

Sanders' insurgent 2016 candidacy against front-runner Hillary Clinton ended up capturing 23 state nominating contests but generated tension between the party's establishment and liberal wings that split the Democrats in 2016 and still plagues the party. Denouncing President Donald Trump as "a pathological liar, a fraud, a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe and someone who is undermining American democracy as he leads us in an authoritarian direction" Sanders said his campaign "is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice".

The self-proclaimed democratic socialist is hoping that 2020 will be his moment, arguing that many of his once-fringe ideas are now accepted by the Democratic Party.

Mr Sanders gave an outline on Tuesday of how he will campaign. Bernie Sanders announced Tuesday that he will once again run for the opportunity to challenge Donald Trump.

Sanders joins crowded field of Democrats in 2020 race; reaction and analysis from the "Special Report" All-Star panel.

Still, there is no question that Sanders will be a formidable contender for the Democratic nomination.

Like Ocasio-Cortez, who in turn picked on some of the themes Sanders first identified during 2016 campaign, the Vermont Senator cited health care, student debt, climate change, income inequality, gun violence and "demonization" of undocumented immigrants among issues that have persuaded him into seeking for a second time the Democratic nomination. While Sanders and his policies were once the outliers, they-or at least most of his policies-have now been co-opted by the mainstream. The 39-year-old former aide to Harry Reid will be the first Muslim to manage a presidential campaign.

Sanders now enters the race as an apparent leader in the polls, thanks to his nationwide name ID, a massive campaign email list of supporters across the country and a powerful digital team.

Sanders also faces different pressures in the #MeToo era. "Every woman in this country who goes to work today or tomorrow has the right to make sure that she is working in an environment which is free of harassment, which is safe and is comfortable, and I will do my best to make that happen". At a time when Americans were tiring of the political competition between right-wing dogma and centrist doublespeak, Sanders spoke a language that was understood by the people.
