Bernie Sanders: Progressives must unite behind Biden against Trump threat

President Biden announced this week that he’s running for reelection and you have already
endorsed him.
Why is it that not a single leading Democrat is willing to contest that nomination in the
primaries?
I suspect it has to do with a real fear of the growth of right-wing extremism in this
country.
The Republican Party over the last number of years, accelerated by Trumpism, has become
not a conservative party but a right-wing extremist party.
And this is a party that, not all by any means, but you have many of the leaders who
actually don’t believe in democracy anymore.
I think there’s a great fear in this country about attacks on democracy.
We want to maintain democracy.
So you’re saying it’s more fear of Donald Trump and MAGA than it is enthusiasm for Joe
Biden?
