Vermont senator Bernie Sanders hit the campaign trail again Thursday evening, urging his supporters to continue the political revolution he started.
Sanders shared his vision for the U.S., speaking broadly about what he views as his ideal America and the Democratic Party.
“It’s not about Bernie Sanders,” he said. “It’s about you and millions of other people,” Sanders added. The senator said his campaign has revealed that his supporters are the revolutionaries.
Hillary Clinton emerged as the presumptive Democratic nominee earlier in the month. While Sanders has yet to concede, he has eased into admission that his bid for presidency is coming to an end. Last week, the senator told C-SPAN, “It does not appear that I’m going to be the nominee.”
Sanders has shifted his focus to communicating his priorities ahead of the Democratic National Convention and shifting the party’s platform.
During his speech on Thursday, Sanders outlined his vision for the United States, which includes a ban on the TPP trade deal, a ban on the sale and distribution of assault weapons and putting an end to closed primaries.
“While we’re at it, we may as well transform the entire Democratic Party,” Sanders said.
Clinton’s name was never mentioned during his speech, but the senator never missed an opportunity to throw jabs at Trump.
