The eyebrow-raising oversight was first by Paste Magazine, which accused CNN, in concert with the Democratic Party, of "stacking" the audience against Sanders by not being upfront about who was tasked with asking the senator questions.

Sanders returned to Brooklyn College, which he once attended, for a rally emphasizing his personal story, as the working class son of a Jewish immigrant who grew up in poor housing. "I know where I came from, and that is something I will never forget".

Nina Turner, and activist and journalist Shaun King, also dove deep into the presidential hopeful's past as they made the case that he is the man to bring down Trump.

Noting that ideas previously characterized as "crazy and extreme" by the Democratic establishment are now considered mainstream, Sanders declared, "We are now on the brink of not just winning an election, but transforming this country".

He talked about the "three-and-a-half room, rent-controlled apartment" his parents and brother shared in Flatbush, not far from here in Brooklyn.

"I am not going to tell you that I grew up in a home of desperate poverty", Sanders said to a crowd of roughly 13,000 people.

"We will no longer tolerate 46 percent of all new income going to the very richest people in this country", said Sen.


"I think every Democrat is gonna come together", Sanders added. Sanders announced his 2020 campaign on February 19 and within days declared he'd launch his campaign in his hometown, Brooklyn. Anita Cox, a social studies teacher said she agrees with Sanders' progressive agenda - specifically Medicare for All, higher minimum wages and the Green New Deal.

From government control of healthcare to federally-mandated wages and attacks against Amazon and Google for making too much money, Sanders echoed communist leaders of the past in chastising wealth and the elite and Democrats are eating it up. In an interview before the trip, campaign co-chair Nina Turner described Sanders' task almost a year out from the Iowa caucuses as "layering on top of what he did in 2016".

Seeking to broaden his appeal to minorities, Sanders will appear in Selma, Ala., on Sunday to participate in events commemorating the Selma civil rights march, which took place in 1965.

Trump let loose against House Democrats broadening their investigations of him, predicted he would win re-election by a greater margin that his 2016 victory, taunted some of his potential White House challengers and sounded themes that are staples of his rallies.

The field of Democrats that he joins includes a number of liberal candidates who share similar sensibilities, most notably Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA. Sanders will make his first trip to the leadoff caucus state of Iowa next week, with plans to campaign in Council Bluffs, Iowa City and Des Moines. Sisa, a millennial left-wing activist, has said her parents brought her illegally to the USA from Argentina when she was six year old. He noted that after studying for a year at Brooklyn College, Sanders transferred to the University of Chicago in 1960 and became heavily involved in local organizing for the Civil Rights Movement.

"I think this was the reason that Democrats lost in 2016", he said. He told the crowd at Navy Pier they should not "allow Trump and his friends to divide us up".
