Bernie Sanders beat the campaign track on Friday night and gathered a crowd of students at the University of Iowa with promises of “Medicare for all” and an end to the Trump administration.

“This is a campaign that will not only win the democratic nomination … which will not only defeat Donald Trump – the most dangerous president of modern American history – but this campaign is about more than that,” says Sanders. I-Vt. The crowd.

The campaign, the senator argued, is about transforming this country so that the United States “works for everyone – not just the 1 percent.”

“We will no longer tolerate the grass of Wall Street, the grass of corporate America and the greed of the billionaire class, Sanders says before he specifically calls the health insurance and pharmaceutical industry.

“I know you have unlimited money,” said Sanders. “Whether you like it or not, this country will pass a Medicare-for-all-payer system. Today, we say to the affiliates of the insurance company, the pharmaceutical industry: You will no longer continue to tear off the American people and pay us by far the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. “

Last month, he told a CNN town hall that health care should be a “human right” and that the United States “shamefully” was the only major country on earth “not to guarantee the health of all people.” He argued that the only “cost-effective” way to provide all US health insurance would be with a “Medicare-for-all payer program”.

He leaned into the idea on Friday night. “We tell the insurance companies and we say to the pharmaceutical companies – a new day comes to America for the care,” he said.

Sanders, not surprisingly, refrained from criticizing his other democratic candidates and instead addressed his criticism of the president.

“Donald Trump slander us every day,” Sanders said. “President Trump, you’re not working to work people when you introduce legislation that would have disappeared insurance for 32 million people.”

The Senator, who said the basics of his campaign will revolve around “justice, race justice and environmental justice”, also criticized the role of big money in political campaigns before taking his own campaign financial roots.

“My friends, we should win this choice, not because we have a super-PAC funded by billionaires. We will win this choice in order to put together the strongest grassroots coalition in our country’s history.

” There is a tremendous amount of work to do – let’s do it. “
