Bernie Sanders Will Remind You Not to Lose Hope in This Inspiring Inauguration Day Video

It’s been a while since Bernie Sanders was a presidential candidate, but luckily the Vermont senator hasn’t gone anywhere when it comes to inspiring people to feel the Bern and stay politically active. Sen. Sanders shared a video message with supporters on Twitter Friday, reminding followers to stay strong on the day Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States.

“Today is going to be a tough day for millions of Americans, including myself. But our response has got to be not to throw up our hands in despair, not to give up, but in fact to fight back as effectively and vigorously as we can,” Sanders said in the video.

“And our job is to keep our eyes on the prize. And the prize is that we will continue fighting for a government that represents all of us, and not just the 1 percent. And we’re going to go forward in the fight for economic, social, environmental and racial justice. That’s who we are. That’s what we’re going to do. We are not giving up,” he concluded.

If Bernie isn’t giving up, then neither can anybody else. Onward!
