Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders raised eyebrows throughout Democratic circles this week; saying the “simple truth” is that he hasn’t “made the decision” on whether he plans to take on President Trump in the 2020 race for the White House.
Sanders was speaking at a candidates forum when he was asked if he was prepared to “pledge” to serve a six-year term should he be re-elected to the United States Senate.
“Right now, my focus is on the year 2018, but if you’re asking me to make an absolute pledge as to whether I’ll be running for president or not, I’m not going to make that pledge,” Sanders said. “The simple truth is I have not made that decision. But I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I may not run. I may. But on the other hand, I may not.”
