Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) is joining what is shaping up to become the most crowded and most diverse field of presidential candidates ever to be presented by the Democrat party, with the likes of Sen. Kamala Harris (California), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts), Sen. Corey Booker (New Jersey).
President Trump sent out a dubious welcome to Sanders, who he derides as “Crazy Bernie” on Twitter, saying he wished the Vermont Senator well in the crowded presidential election race. Not long after, the Senator fired back.
Crazy Bernie has just entered the race. I wish him well!
