MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The senator added that the subtext of his entire electoral campaign was a political revolution to make significant social and economic changes in US society.
"Every issue we talk about: creating jobs, raising the minimum wage, pay equity for women, making sure that the young people can go to college tuition-free at public colleges and universities, climate change, all of these issues are issues that the American people believe in! Meanwhile, you’ve got a Congress [saying], 'Oh, these are terribly radical ideas!'" Sanders told RT broadcaster.
Sanders gave the interview just before the Iowa caucus, which marked the start of the 2016 US presidential nomination process. Sanders finished second on 49.6 percent, while his rival Hillary Clinton narrowly won with 49.9 percent of voter support.
