Sanders compares COVID-19 crisis to 'major war'

Sanders spoke of the "largely incompetent" administration during his speech in Burlington, Vermont and said "Congress in a bipartisan manner must take responsibility for addressing this unparalleled crisis."

"During a crisis we must make sure that we care for the community's most vulnerable to the health and economic pain that is coming. Those in nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities, those confined in immigration detention centers, those who are currently incarcerated and in jails and all people regardless of their immigration status,” said Sanders.
