Sanders calls for independent election commission to protect democracy

Senator Bernie Sanders has returned to the campaign trail and called for an independent election commission to stop Donald Trump defying the will of the people and plunging American into a constitutional crisis.

The independent senator also urged social media companies to “get their act together” and news media to prepare the American people to understand “there is no longer a single election day”.

Sanders, whose losing campaign against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary in 2016 left wounds on both sides, has earned praise this time for rallying his army of progressive supporters around Joe Biden, who defeated him in this year’s nominating contest.

In Washington on Thursday, at his first in-person event since suspending his campaign in the spring, Sanders reiterated that he is “strongly supporting” Biden. But his focus was the unprecedented threat posed by Trump to the oldest continuous democracy in the modern world.

“No matter how rich and powerful you may be, no matter how arrogant and narcissistic you may be, no matter how much you think you can get anything you want, let me make this clear to Donald Trump,” the senator said. “Too many people have fought and died to defend American democracy and you are not going to destroy it.”

Standing before four US flags and blue velvet curtains at George Washington University, Sanders said: “This is not just an election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. This is an election between Donald Trump and democracy – and democracy must win.”

Breonna Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, moments ago made a post on Instagram about her daughter, who was shot dead by police in Louisville, Kentucky, in March, with no charges directly relating to her killing having been announced by the authorities yesterday.

The post features a painting of Breonna with the hashtag “#thesystemfailedBreonna” and her mother writes: “It’s still Breonna Taylor for me”.

Fresh protests were expected in Louisville and elsewhere in America today as public anger and sadness continue to ripple out from the stunning announcement yesterday.
