Bernie Sanders gets personal as he hits the 2020 campaign trailAt a rally in Brooklyn, near the New York City neighborhood where he grew up in a small, rent-controlled apartment, Sanders contrasted his spare upbringing with Republican President Donald Trump’s privileged youth as the son of a New York real estate developer. “My experience as a kid, living in a family that struggled economically, powerfully influenced my life and my values,” Sanders said at a campaign kickoff rally at Brooklyn College, where he once attended classes. “Unlike Donald Trump, who shut down the government and left 800,000 federal employees without income to pay the bills, I know what it’s like to be in a family that lives paycheck to paycheck,” he said.
