Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign slogan is “Not me. Us.” and represents a direct rebuke of President Donald Trump’s message in 2016 that he “alone” can “fix” the US. At a campaign rally in Iowa on Thursday night, Sanders told a cheering crowd that no one person can solve the country’s problems “alone.” “The only way we transform America is when millions of people together stand up and fight back,” Sanders said during a speech that included multiple, explicit jabs at the president. 

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA — Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign slogan is attempting to draw a sharp contrast with President Donald Trump by reworking the president’s messaging from 2016. 

As Sanders has hit the campaign trail over the past week, a consistent theme has emerged at his rallies as the senator’s supporters have chanted his name — Sanders interrupts the crowd and says his campaign is not about “Bernie” but “you” and “us.” See the rest of the story at Business Insider
