Sen. Bernie Sanders talks with Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, about his 2020 presidential bid, his platform, and who he might pick for a VP. Sanders said he will probably select someone younger than him who is a female.
"We have been criticized, correctly so, for running a campaign that was too white and too male-oriented, and that is going to change," Sanders said when asked what lessons he learned from 2016. "We are going to have a very very diverse campaign staff, and we’re going to do a better job of reaching out to every community in this country."
Host Cenk Uygur asked Sanders: "What are the attributes you would look for in a vice president?"
"I think we would look for somebody who is maybe not of the same gender that I am, and maybe somebody might be a couple of years younger than me," Sanders replied, adding "and somebody who can take the progressive banner as vice-president and carry it all over this country to help us with our agenda, and help us to rally the American people."
