Bernie Sanders: "Nero Fiddled While Rome Burned, Trump Golfs"

|

Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks at the 2020 Democratic Convention. Sanders says that "by rejecting science," President Trump has "put our lives and health in jeopardy" and "fanned this pandemic."

"In response to the unprecedented set of crises we face, we need an unprecedented response - a movement, like never before, of people who are prepared to stand up and fight for democracy and decency—and against greed, oligarchy and authoritarianism."

"My friends, the price of failure us just too great to imagine," Sanders said about the Biden/Harris ticket.


"Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Trump golfs."

"This election is the most important in the modern history of this country," he said. "In response to the unprecedented crises we face, we need an unprecedented response — a movement, like never before, of people who are prepared to stand up and fight for democracy and decency — and against greed, oligarchy, and bigotry. And we need Joe Biden as our next president."

"As long as I am here, I will work with progressives, with moderates, and, yes, with conservatives to preserve this nation from a threat that so many of our heroes fought and died to defeat," he added.

"Ideas that were once considered radical only a few years ago are now considered mainstream," Sanders said.
