Terry Alexander, criminal justice activist Shaun King and former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, sought to weave together his little-known personal history with his well-known left-wing policies.They also contrasted Sanders' life story with that of President Donald Trump's."I did not have a father who gave me millions of dollars to build luxury skyscrapers, casinos and country clubs," Sanders said. Tomorrow, he is continuing the tour of his roots with an event in Chicago, where he graduated from college and participated in the civil rights movement.Sanders' allies have long pushed him to talk more about his past, arguing that it is a powerful story that could help him build trust with Americans who feel attacked by Trump.
