Bernie Sanders hasn’t ruled out another run for presidency in 2020, while also branding the Democratic party’s loss to Donald Trump “an embarrassment.”
When asked by AP whether he would run in the next presidential election, Sanders said, "Four years is a long time from now," explaining he is up for Senate reelection in 2018. "We'll take one thing at a time, but I'm not ruling out anything."
Following Donald Trump’s election victory, many have pointed to the fact that had the Democratic National Committee not worked to prevent Sanders from winning the primaries, the 75-year-old senator could have beaten Trump in a general election.
Sanders has also said Trump’s victory was an embarrassment to the Democratic party, as working class voters chose the Republican candidate over Hillary Clinton.
"It is an embarrassment, I think, to the entire of Democratic party that millions of white working-class people decided to vote for Mr. Trump,” he said. “Which suggests that the Democratic message of standing up for working people no longer holds much sway among workers in this country."
