In his remarks, Sanders referred to President Donald Trump as "the most dangerous president in the history of our country" and pledged to defeat him in 2020—though, Sanders said, that's just part of the campaign's goal.
"It is not enough just to defeat Trump," said Sanders. "We must finally create a government and economy that works for all of us, not just the one percent."
The Democratic primary takes place on Feb. 11, 2020.
