Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) bragged about moving the Democratic Party further to the left during an interview with MSNBC on Thursday.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes asked Sanders why he decided to run again for president in 2020.

“Well, I think for a couple of reasons, Chris. First of all, I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished in 2016, and I’m proud that we changed the political discourse in this country, that ideas that today are widely accepted are part of the mainstream, are being supported by many Democratic candidates,” Sanders said.

“If you will recall, three years ago, these ideas were considered to be radical and extreme and fringe — and fringe ideas. So we’ve come a long way, I think in transforming the Democratic Party and making it into a more progressive party,” Sanders added.
