Pakistanis Heartbroken As Bernie Sanders Drops Out Of US Presidential Race
US Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders has dropped out of the presidential race. He made the announcement on Wednesday and left his fans dejected. Former Vice President Joe Biden is now the presumptive presidential nominee from the Democratic Party.
“I have concluded that this battle for the Democratic nomination will not be successful, and so today I am announcing the suspension of my campaign”, Sanders said while speaking to his supporters/
Like many others, Sanders’ Pakistani supporters are also disappointed at the news and have reacted to the development on social media. Bernie Sanders was the only mainstream US politician who had been a vocal voice against the atrocities in Indian-Occupied Kashmir. His campaign manager Faiz is a Pakistan-American activist. Sanders would often win hearts in Pakistan by sharing campaign messages in Urdu on his social media pages.
