In it, Sanders addressed the problems surrounding education, health care and other areas, and he wants people to focus on finding solutions like their focusing on the virus.
“There’s a virus that has the whole world’s attention because it’s a threat to all but there’s been a Poverty, Educational, Healthcare, Parenting, Joblessness, Crime & RACIAL virus that’s been Killing our communities 4ever,” Sanders tweeted on March 10. “Let’s focus on this 1 with the same Solvency please. #Truth.”
“Say it again for the ones in the back!!” one of his followers tweeted afterward.
“Preach on, Prime,” wrote someone else. “Problem is that many in our country want to use today’s virus to keep in place and further deepen those other ones you mentioned.”
Even those who admitted they aren’t the biggest Sanders supporters agreed with his tweet.
