Sanders Says Paycheck-to-Paycheck Youth Prepped Him for Revolution

The Independent Vermont senator spoke to a massive crowd in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York on Saturday and is now heading to the Midwest. "I had the role model of a father who had unbelievable courage in journeying across an ocean with no money in his pocket to start a new and better life".

As the number of Democrats running for U.S. president grows, the 2020 hopefuls fanned out across several early-voting states over the weekend and met with voters in some of the states that will have an early say in determining the nominee. "As I recall, my allowance was twenty-five cents a week".

"As we launch this campaign for president, you deserve to know where I came from because family history, obviously, heavily influences the values that we develop as adults", the presidential hopeful said during a visit to Brooklyn College.

The Vermont senator, an unsparing critic of the US President who has described Mr Trump as a "pathological liar", positioned himself in opposition to the Trump administration's policies from immigration to climate change.

Sanders pledged to fight for "economic justice, social justice, racial justice and environmental justice".

"I did not come from a family of privilege that prepared me to entertain people on television by telling workers, 'You're fired, '" Sanders said, using Trump's tagline from The Apprentice.

We need to go a goal in front for a change, rather than committing suicide like that and giving two goals away. Jota struck in the 16th minute after a slick 16-pass move ended when Jimenez teed up his strike partner.

Sanders' 2020 manifesto includes healthcare for all, a $15-an-hour minimum wage and action on climate change.

The Democrats in the 2020 race have taken varied approaches to President Trump, with some avoiding saying his name entirely, while others make implicit critiques of his presidency.

"We have an enormous amount of work in front of us", Sanders said. A second campaign rally this weekend was set for Chicago, where he attended the University of Chicago and was involved in civil rights protests.

While Sanders often has not highlighted his history as a civil rights activist during his previous political campaigns, it seems to be emerging as an early focal point of this one.

After Brooklyn, Sanders planned to travel to Selma, Alabama, where he will be among the politicians commemorating the anniversary of the 1965 clash known as "Bloody Sunday", when peaceful demonstrators were beaten back by Alabama state troopers as they attempted to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge. He has a new campaign manager, a more diverse staff and an inner circle of advisers - some familiar, some new to the fold - that, in its opening stages, has already achieved a small feat: they convinced the 77-year-old Sanders that, as he seeks higher office again, he must be willing to step out of his comfort zone and tell Americans who he is, where he came from - and why it matters.
