In contrast, Hillary Clinton to the polls for the second time did not go. Refused to race and former new York mayor, billionaire Michael Bloomberg. “Clinton reiterated that he would not run for President in 2020, refuses third run for the White house. Sorry, does this mean that I’ll never again compete with her? It will be sorely missed!” – said on Twitter the refusal of the former rivals from the race President Donald trump.

In 2016, he lost the Democratic primary to Hillary Clinton, but since then have repeatedly said that I will move forward again, and a promise kept. He calls himself a democratic socialist, and advocates for universal health care and free higher education. But Sanders can become a victim of its own success.
