In an appearance on FusionTV’s “America,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told host Jorge Ramos he believed he could beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
Sanders laid out a case for his candidacy when asked if he thought he could defeat Clinton..
“I think there is a lot of frustration and anger among working families who, in many cases, are working longer hours for low wages,” Sanders said. “Yet what they’re seeing is while their standard of living goes down, almost all new income goes to the top 1 percent. And we have this obscene level of income and wealth inequality. So the anger and frustration is out there. So yes, I do think that if I ran, I could win”
