“Standing here tonight with the support of so many thousands of people is a very humbling experience. It’s a very, very moving experience,” he told CNN.
“I’m going to do everything that I can to make sure that I do not let these people down,” he added.
The Hill reports:
With less than a week remaining until New York primary, Sanders on Wednesday night vowed that his criticism against Verizon is just the beginning of his battle against corporate America.
“Verizon is just a poster child for what so many corporations are doing today,” he said during the rally. “This campaign is sending a message to corporate America: You cannot have it all.”
“If you think you are going to continue to destroy the middle class in this country, if you think you can continue to throw the American worker on the street, you’ve got another guess coming. It ain’t going to happen when I’m president,” he continued.
Earlier Wednesday, he joined striking Verizon workers and slammed the telecommunications giant for “trying to destroy the lives of working Americans.”
