W/S Crowd at campaign rally, Charlotte, North Carolina
SOT, Bernie Sanders, US Democratic Party presidential candidate: "We must and we will defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of America. And no matter what your political views may be, I think we all recognize that it is unacceptable to have in the White House somebody who is a pathological liar, who lies every day. You know, somebody who is running a corrupt administration, somebody who does not understand the Constitution of the United States of America."

SOT, Bernie Sanders, US Democratic Party presidential candidate: "And here you have a president who calls the media, enemies of the people. A president who doesn't respond to subpoenas from Congress, a president who is now telling the judiciary what they should do. We have news for Mr. Trump. We believe in democracy, not authoritarianism. Nobody nobody in this country, not the president or anybody else, is above the law. Donald Trump you ain't going to get reelected."

SOT, Bernie Sanders, US Democratic Party presidential candidate: "But the second reason. That we are in this race. Not just to defeat Trump, but to understand that there are fundamental problems that exist now and have existed for decades that can no longer be ignored. Let's face it, let's be honest. Let's not sweep problems under the rug. We have a corrupt political system which enables billionaires to buy elections. Now, maybe I am old fashioned, but to me what democracy is about is one person, one vote, not billionaires, purchasing candidates. And the other issue out there, media doesn't talk about it, Congress doesn't talk about it, we've got to talk about, it is we have more income and wealth inequality in America today than any time in the last hundred years."

SOT, Bernie Sanders, US Democratic Party presidential candidate: "My friends, this 2020 election is the most consequential election in modern American history or maybe the history of our entire country. Future of America depends on the election results in November and today.... Damn right we're going to beat Donald Trump."

SCRIPT
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders called US President Donald Trump a "pathological liar" during a campaign rally in Charlotte, North Carolina on Friday.
"We must and we will defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of America. And no matter what your political views may be, I think we all recognize that it is unacceptable to have in the White House somebody who is a pathological liar," Sanders said.
He continued, "And here you have a president who calls the media enemies of the people. A president who doesn't respond to subpoenas from Congress, a president who is now telling the judiciary what they should do when we have news for Mr. Trump. We believe in democracy, not authoritarianism. Nobody nobody in this country, not the president or anybody else, is above the law. Donald Trump you ain't going to get reelected."
Sander also said that the US has "a corrupt political system which enables billionaires to buy elections." He added, "to me what democracy is about is one person, one vote, not billionaires, purchasing candidates."
On Tuesday, Sanders narrowly won the New Hampshire primary. With 95 percent of the vote counted, Sanders led former mayor Pete Buttigieg by nearly 4,300 votes.
The next primaries are set to take place in Nevada on February 22. The Democratic Presidential nominee will be announced at the Democratic National Convention in July.
