VIDEO: Sanders Announces 2020 Presidential Bid

Ssenator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent and 2016 Democratic primary runner-up whose populist policy agenda has helped push the party to the left, embarked on Tuesday on a second run for president, in a bid that would will test whether he could retain the anti-establishment appeal he enjoyed with many liberal voters three years ago.

The independent senator announced his campaign in an email and a video posted on hisTwitter account, telling his supporters, “Real change never takes place from the top on down, but always from the bottom on up.” He asked in the email for his loyalists to join “an unprecedented and historic grass roots campaign that will begin with at least a million people from across the country.” He called the president “the most dangerous president in modern American history.”
