In His Own Words
On his first priority as president: “We’ve got to fix our democracy before it’s too late. We get that right and climate, immigration, taxes and everything else gets better”
“We also need to create common-sense campaign finance rules that clearly establish that corporations do not have the same political rights as people, and dollars cannot outvote human beings.”
