Bernie Sanders doubles down on democratic socialist views

(SOUND BITE) U.S. SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, SAYING: "Economic rights are human rights.

And that is what I mean by democratic socialism." U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders defended his democratic socialist agenda on Wednesday, calling it an extension of former President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, and proposed taking up his second Bill of Rights that would guarantee economic security for all.

(SOUND BITE) U.S. SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, SAYING: "Today in the second decade of the 21st century we must take up the unfinished business of the New Deal and carry it to completion." Reuters Political Correspondent John Whitesides is covering the campaign.

(SOUND BITE) REUTERS POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT JOHN WHITESIDES, SAYING: "Sanders did this in 2015 in his first campaign.

He realized that a lot of voters didn't understand democratic socialism.

He maintains that it's better understood now, but he's still taking a lot of heat from critics about the socialist tag.

And he wanted to make the case that this is the actual best way to take on Donald Trump and could see what he called Trump's hypocrisy." (SOUND BITE) U.S. SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, SAYING: "They may hate democratic socialism because it benefits working people.

But they absolutely love corporate socialism that enriches Trump and other billionaires." (SOUND BITE) REUTERS POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT JOHN WHITESIDES, SAYING: "Sanders has critics in both parties on this issue.

Republicans, led by Trump, obviously, have made it clear that they're going to make socialism an issue in the election no matter who the nominee is.

For Democrats, some of the lesser-known candidates, some of the more moderate candidates who haven't gotten any traction like Hickenlooper and John Delaney have really taken on Sanders on this issue and said that's not the way to win and have gotten some notice by taking on Sanders." Sanders consistently places second in opinion polls out of the more than 20 candidates seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
