Sanders: ‘People in a Democracy Have a Right to Vote; We Are Assessing Our Campaign’

‘And they have a right to vote for the agenda that they think can work for America, especially in this very, very difficult moment’

EXCERPT:

GOLDBERG: "Just so we’re clear, you worked for Hillary, but it took you a very, very long time to hop in, and your people also took a very long time for them to hop in. So when I say that, that’s what I’m talking about."
SANDERS: "Well, I -- I don’t accept that characterization, but the point is people have a right —"
GOLBERG: "OK. Why are you still in the race?"
SANDERS: "People have a right — last I heard, people in a democracy have a right to vote, and they have a right to vote for the agenda that they think can work for America, especially in this very, very difficult moment. We are assessing our campaign as a matter of fact where we want to go forward, but people in a democracy do have a right to vote. And right now in this unprecedented moment in American history, I think we need to have a very serious look at how we need to go forward. And one of the things that I’m, working on with other members of the Congress and Senate is a new stimulus package which not only makes sure that all of our people in this crisis have health care, but also that they continue to receive their paychecks. We have got to understand where we are at, and right now it’s April 1st. It is likely possible there are millions of people who cannot pay their rent, cannot pay their mortgage."
