USA: Sanders urges supporters to unite against 'Donald Trumps of the world'

United States, Greenville
February 22, 2016 at 01:33 GMT +00:00 · Published

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders addressed hundreds of supporters at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina on Sunday.

The Democratic hopeful assured his supporters that there is "nothing we cannot accomplish" if they joined forces and stood together in demanding that the US government represents every person and "not just the one percent." Sanders continued, urging the US public "not allow to Donald Trumps of the world to divide us up by race, or where we were born."

Sanders claimed the US "should take marijuana out of the Federal Controlled Substance Act, not make it a federal crime," adding that it is "dumb" to have marijuana alongside heroin as a Schedule One level of the Controlled Substances Act.

The presidential candidate also reiterated a common theme of his campaign: free education, saying "I believe that in the year 2016 when we talk about public education, we've got to be talking about colleges and universities tuition free."

Sanders continued rallying his supporters following the Nevada caucus defeat at the hands of rival Hillary Clinton and ahead of the key 'Super Tuesday' round of polling on March 1, when a dozen states will choose their candidates for the upcoming November 8 presidential election.
