Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders announces he will run for president in the 2020 election.
Sanders made the announcement Tuesday during a radio interview, emphasizing the importance of stopping the reelection of President Trump.
I’m running for president. I am asking you to join me today as part of an unprecedented and historic grassroots campaign that will begin with at least 1 million people from across the country. Say you’re in: https://t.co/KOTx0WZqRf pic.twitter.com/T1TLH0rm26

The Vermont Senator slammed the president saying, “I think it is unacceptable and un-American, to be frank with you, that we have a president who is a pathological liar.”
Sanders is expected to run on universal healthcare, raising the minimum wage, and free college tuition.
The self-proclaimed democratic socialist refuses to join the Democratic Party but will more than likely seek a primary win as the election nears.
Several Democratic lawmakers have announced they will run in 2020 or have launched exploratory committees.
Sanders ran for the Democratic nomination during the 2016 presidential election, and garnered 13 million votes during the primaries.
