Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign emphasizes minority voices. Sunday he addressed the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women and how America should support Native American relationships and history.
“The needs of the American Indian have been ignored, treaties have been broken and lie after lie has been told to you,” Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-VT said.
“I think he’s got a lot of things that I know that I hope he can do for the Native American tribes that he already spoke about, and I really like the way he spoke and he’ll have my vote anytime,” Comanche Nation Native American Tahdooahnippah said.
With the 2020 presidential election right around the corner, people have a lot to consider before taking their vote to the polls.
