Bernie Sanders says he's running for president in 2020

Bernie Sanders was runner up to Hillary Clinton last time around

"Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution. He's going to say, 'Bernie Sanders wants the United States to become Venezuela", Sanders told CBS. "It is absolutely imperative that Donald Trump be defeated, because I think it is unacceptable and un-American, to be frank with you, that we have a president who is a pathological liar and it gives me no pleasure to say that, but it's true", CBS News quoted him as saying today.

In the video, Sanders said that policies he advocated during the 2016 campaign have made their way into the political mainstream, and that it is now time to "complete that revolution".

In a video announcing his candidacy, Sanders called Trump pathological liar and a racist.

Bernie Sanders will run a second presidential campaign after battling Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic nomination.

"We have had more success in ideologically changing the party than I would have dreamed possible", Sanders said in an interview with GQ magazine.

The question is whether Sanders will be able to recreate that excitement around this campaign, while also broadening his base beyond millennials and progressives. It may be recalled that he lost the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton in 2016.

He served as mayor until 1989, winning election as an independent to the US House of Representatives in 1990.

Mr Sanders entered the race for the 2016 Democratic nomination as a long-shot candidate but emerged as a surprise star during a series of televised debates.

The party's lurch to the left might make a 2020 campaign easier for Sanders, but he must now also face a bevy of new, liberal Democratic candidates who will claim the mantle of progressive champion - including Sen.

Texas Democrat Beto O'Roarke, who nearly beat Republican Ted Cruz to win the Texas Senate previous year, enjoys a similar level of support among young liberal voters as Bernie did while seeking the last nomination.

Sanders garnered more than 13 million primary votes and carried 23 states during the Democratic primaries by energizing a movement of young voters with his fiery populist rhetoric.

Donald Trump won the election and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a young congresswoman from NY, is a rising Democratic star, embracing numerous positions held by Mr Sanders. "That's certainly one of them", Sanders said referring to the fact that at least several candidates have embraced parts of his agenda. "Our campaign is not only about defeating Donald Trump".

Sanders made the announcement in an interview with Vermont Public Radio Tuesday morning. When Sanders met with a group of men and women who wrote a letter to his office detailing their experiences in 2016, he was, according one former staffer in attendance, "conciliatory" and opened his remarks with what she described as an "honest apology". "Whether the goal is Medicare for All, truly progressive taxation, tuition-free public college or absolute dedication to environmental protection, Bernie has been there first - and, by far, he remains the clearest, most authentic and most trustworthy candidate".
