'Complete the revolution': Bernie Sanders launches 2020 presidential bid

Sen. Bernie Sanders More

"Ironically, Bernie's agenda for working families will be the Democratic Party's message in 2020, but he may not be the one leading the parade", Bill Press, a talk show host who backed Sanders in 2016, said previous year.

Rumors have also been swirling around former Vice President Joe Biden, while Hillary Clinton has also been mentioned as considering another bid.

In an email to supporters Tuesday, Sanders said he would push some of the same issues in his new run for the White House that animated his 2016 bid, including health care, climate change, student debt and income inequality.

One email, hitting inboxes around 9 p.m. ET, pointed out that "as the clock ticks toward midnight, we're pretty close to reaching a pair of milestones we frankly didn't think would be possible on day one".

Sanders also enters the race with more than $9 million left in his U.S. Senate campaign committee - funds that he can transfer to his presidential campaign.

Last month, Sen. Kamala Harris of California announced that she had pulled in $1.5 million online from more than 38,000 individual donors over the first 24 hours of her campaign, with her aides highlighting that the average contribution was $37 and that 75 percent of the donations came from people who had not donated to her before.

We have a progressive Governor and a progressive Mayor, Cuomo and de Blasio respectively, and the city is literally beginning to collapse: the roads are falling apart, the subway doesn't run effectively; and their answer for everything is more taxes and 'Charge more.' Yet, taxes have increased in New York City 3 billion dollars, this year; yet, services have declined.

Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, Trump dismissed Sanders' chances but said at least the senator, like Trump, has been tough on free-trade deals. And he's kind of like you're insane old grandfather, who you should respect because of his years spent on the planet; yet, when you listen to what he says, they sound like the wacky ramblings of somebody that doesn't have a clear understanding of the way the world or our country works.

But I think the real question is that, you know, there are some progressives who are anxious that a Sanders candidacy will actually divide their wing of the party and, in essence, what will happen is potentially a more moderate, centrist candidate will rise up.

And Trump had said: "Personally, I think he missed his time". His campaign spotlighted that the video was viewed more than 8.3 million times across social media. He's the one person on trade, he sort of would agree.

And he referred to Sanders as "Crazy Bernie" during the 2016 presidential race. For a second time in eight days, Sanders has apologized to women on his 2016 presidential campaign, seeking to put behind him damaging reports about how some female staff members were mistreated.

"What I promise to do is, as I go around the country, is to take the values that all of us in Vermont are proud of - a belief in justice, in community, in grassroots politics, in town meetings - that's what I'm going to carry all over this country", he said in an interview with Vermont Public Radio. Sanders is also in competition with high-profile Democrats, including Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren.

More than 250,000 people had signed on to support Sanders, the campaign said.
