Watch: Bernie Sanders names Obama’s biggest mistake

In a recent interview with Little Village, Bernie Sanders expressed his admiration and fondness for President Barack Obama, but highlighted their “major political disagreement,” which he says came after Obama “ran his brilliant campaign in 2008.”

“Young people all across the political spectrum, [he] brought ‘em together!” he says of the sitting president, but after the war was won, Sanders says, “he basically said, ‘Thank you very much for electing me, I will take it from here.’ That was a mistake.”

Here, Sanders discusses the importance of the young U.S. citizenry’s education and professionalization, and the importance millennials will play in enacting legislative reform:
