Sanders: Iowa Caucus ‘Beginning Of The End' For Trump
Socialist candidate makes bold prediction during speech
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told a room of supporters in Des Moines Sunday that the Iowa caucus would be the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”
During a speech in the Des Moines bar where Sander's campaign was hosting a Super Bowl watch party, the socialist candidate thanked his supporters for their dedication to his 2020 campaign.
“I really have been impressed about how serious the people of this state are examining the issues and listening to the candidates,” Sanders said.
“And I thank you all very much for that," Sanders said.
"I don’t have to tell anybody in this room that the 2020 election is the most consequential election, certainly in the modern history of America, and quite possibly in the history of America.”
Sanders said the 2020 election was about defeating Donald Trump, referring to him as the “most dangerous president” in American history.
He then went on to promise his presidency would bring people together “around an agenda that works for all of us, not just the one percent.”
“So, tomorrow night is the beginning," Sanders declared.
"It is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” he added.
“At the beginning of the moment when we tell the billionaire class in the 1 percent: this country belongs to all of us, not just a few.”
Over the past few months, Sanders climbed in the polls.

According to the RealClearPolitics average of the latest Iowa Democratic caucus surveys, Sander was in the mid-teens in October and the first half of November.
Last month, Sanders admitted the Senate’s impeachment trial against President Donald Trump put him at a disadvantage against candidate former Vice President Joe Biden.
Despite the claims, Sanders said he is upholding his “constitutional responsibility.”
Sanders said it is “disappointing to me not to be in Iowa, talking to the people there.”
“I’m accepting my constitutional responsibility," Sanders said.
"But what I’m saying, obviously, is, at a disadvantage.”
Trump also said that the delay of the impeachment process, orchestrated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was designed to hurt Sanders by forcing him to be bogged down in the Senate trial during the Iowa caucuses.
