Vermont Senator and potential 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders identified a major “moral issue” plaguing the nation this week; saying “wealth inequality” needs to be “addressed” because 40% of Americans “cannot afford the basics to live.”

“Wealth inequality is a profound moral issue this country must address. The richest 3 Americans cannot continue owning more wealth than the bottom half of our country, while over 40% cannot afford the basics to live,” said Sanders.
