Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) appeared on MSNBC on Wednesday to discuss why he wants to reopen the country and his thoughts on the Joe Biden presidential campaign.
STEPHANIE RUHLE, MSNBC: Well, I want to ask you before we leave about former Vice President Joe Biden. Should he be doing more to engage with the public right now? We could talk all day long about all the things the president is doing wrong, but the president continues to control the narrative. Does VP Biden need to do something differently, so he can take the narrative?
SEN. BERNIE SANDERS (I-VT): Well, I'm not running his campaign, but what I have done with him is to establish six task forces which are dealing with all of the major issues in this country, including the economy, healthcare, criminal justice, immigration, education, climate change, and we have brought some of the strongest progressives in this country onto those task forces.
So, I would answer your question, Stephanie, by saying I think there is an excellent chance that Biden is going to win, but in order to guarantee that he is going to have to reach out to working class people and young people in a way that he has not done up to now, and he is going to have to make it clear he stands with a working class in this country that is struggling right now. He is prepared to take on the corporate elite and the big money interest in order to create an economy that works for all, not just the few.
