  • BERNIE UNLOADS: Sanders Says He has 'Fundamental Differences' with Hillary, Won't Seek Her Advice

During his speech at Brooklyn College, Senator Sanders called Mr Trump "the most unsafe president in modern American history" and said the US President wants to "divide us up". Those areas have never been issues for me.

Trump plans to speak to a gathering of conservatives in suburban Maryland, where he is expected to emphasize the White House's political message that Democrats are rallying behind what his team is calling the policies of "socialism".

Although many widely viewed Sanders as a progressive outlier in 2016, with an unlikely shot at winning the presidency, his radical views now seem mainstream among Democrats and the other 2020 candidates.

"I know where I came from", said Sanders, who grew up on E. 26th and Kings Hwy in a rent-controlled apartment.

"I did not have a father who gave me millions of dollars to build luxury skyscrapers, casinos and country clubs", said Mr Sanders, who has lived in Vermont for decades. "You know, I think every Democrat is going to come together".

Indeed, Sanders provided a rare glimpse into his childhood during his speech, breaking from his tendency during his 2016 campaign of avoiding sentimentality, as he offered insights into how his Brooklyn roots shaped his worldview. "When they refused, we staged one of the first-ever civil rights sit-ins in the north", Sanders said, later adding that he sees what he did as far less significant than the unsafe activism civil rights advocates undertook in the south.

Social media users were quick to blast Sanders on his Facebook post, though many agreed with him.

He had begun his 2016 campaign in Vermont, which he has represented in the Senate for almost two decades.

On Sunday, Sanders heads to Selma, Alabama, to mark the anniversary of the 1965 clash known as "Bloody Sunday" and will also visit Chicago, where he graduated from college and was active in civil rights protests.

He labels himself a Democratic socialist, which he has defined as someone who seeks to "create an economy that works for all, not just the very wealthy".

Supporters trudged through the slushy streets of Brooklyn-many before 8:00 a.m. -to cheer on Sanders, who in 2016 lost the Democratic nomination by 12 percent to Hillary Clinton.

If he were elected to the White House in 2020, "the principles of our government will not be racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, and religious bigotry", Sanders added. Sisa, a millennial left-wing activist, has said her parents brought her illegally to the USA from Argentina when she was six year old.

The other speakers on Saturday, including Sanders' wife Jafe Sanders, former OH state Sen. One of the challenges Mr Sanders faces is that the Democratic Party has shifted to the left, making his message less distinctive, BBC North America reporter Anthony Zurcher says. He told the crowd at Navy Pier they should not "allow Trump and his friends to divide us up".
