PBS NewsHour

Dec 19, 2019

To debate moderator Amna Nawaz’s question, what message does it send that the Democratic presidential field is overwhelmingly white, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., began speaking about climate change. When Nawaz pressed him to respond to the original question on race, he said, “People of color are going to be the ones suffering the most if we do not deal with climate change.” Sanders is one of the seven Democrats vying for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination who met on the stage for the sixth Democratic debate on Dec. 19, hosted by the PBS NewsHour and POLITICO.
