Bernie Sanders might make another bid for the White House.
As many Americans panic, mourn & protest, many people ponder an alternative outcome if Bernie Sanders had won the Democratic nomination. Sanders may have came out of this election as one of its most well liked figures, and it doesn't sound likely Sanders will be disappearing from the public anytime soon.
If Donald Trump takes people's anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare.— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) November 10, 2016
In a phone interview today with Associated Press, Senator Sanders responded to whether or not he'd run again for president next time around: "Four years is a long time from now...We'll take one thing at a time, but I'm not ruling out anything."
Sanders also took the opportunity to chastise the Democratic Party, for a hypocrisy that he feels voters have seen through. "You cannot be a party which on one hand says we're in favor of working people, we're in favor of the needs of young people but we don't quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class ... People do not believe that. You've got to decide which side you're on."
If Bernie Sanders is elected president in 2020, he would be sworn in at the age of 79. We're not saying we don't back it, we just hope his VP is really really ready to be president too.
