Bernie Sanders Defends Socialism at George Washington University Speech

Vermont senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has given a speech touting democratic socialism as the alternative to defeat oligarchy and right-wing nationalism, as he seeks to win the Democratic nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in next year’s election. Sanders pushed back against attacks on socialism from Trump and other Republicans, calling his platform a continuation of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal.
