Former vice president Joe Biden, an instant frontrunner should he enter the race, has signaled he would be more than ready to get into the mud with The Donald.

Bernie Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont and the 2016 Democratic primary runner-up, who had been widely credited with bringing socialism back into mainstream American politics and introducing an entire generation to left-leaning politics, is back.

"Well, who's to say, but you could have a situation where since there's so many candidates running, he is the one with the base of support", Harrington said.

In morning tweets, Trump also greeted Sanders' entry into the contest.

Sanders' identification as a democratic socialist in 2016-when he was credited for bold proposals on healthcare, education, and economic, environmental and social challenges-became a defining aspect of his career.

Sanders also will face lingering resentment in some Democratic quarters over the 2016 campaign.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday revived a nickname he used for Sen. They include fellow Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of MA.

"The president has begun his campaign earlier than any previous president and is taking a much more determined approach to fundraising than you saw in 2016", Mr. Corrado said.

"What's insane is that we have a president who is a racist, a sexist, a xenophobe and a fraud", he wrote. "It makes him somebody the rest of the field has to take very seriously, and who has a better shot than many of them at emerging as one of the three or four who actually competes long term for the nomination".

A New York Times analysis from earlier this month estimated that Sanders's list of 2.1 million online donors roughly equaled the total of every other Democratic hopeful combined.

"Personally, I think he missed his time", Trump said on February 19.

Additionally, since 2016, the Democratic Party has adopted numerous progressive positions that Sanders had embraced in contrast to Clinton's more moderate stances during the 2016 election cycle.

"We need somebody who can tap a broader segment of the electorate", said Abramson, the 2016 Sanders delegate.

In January, he apologized to women campaign workers who said they had been harassed or mistreated by male campaign staffers, and he acknowledged the campaign's "standards and safeguards were inadequate".

The host of CBS's The Late Show Stephen Colbert speaks to guest Senator Bernie Sanders during the show, December 5, 2018.

"I think the current occupant of the White House is an embarrassment to our country", Sanders declared, calling Trump a "pathological liar", a "racist, a sexist, a homophobe", and a "xenophobe".
