Sanders enters US presidential race


WASHINGTON: US Senator Bernie Sanders formally launched his populist, liberal campaign for the White House on Tuesday, reiterating his pledges to recalibrate an American economic system which created sharp disparities between rich and poor. Sanders, who had said last month he planned to stand in the election, told a launch event in Vermont he was running to support the interests of American voters tired of a “rigged” system. “This type of rigged economy is not what America is supposed to be about,” said Sanders, who proudly describes himself as a socialist, in prepared remarks for the rally.
