Elizabeth warren and Bernie Sanders

As Americans prepare to vote for a new president, the Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren has said she will start to cancel Student Loan Debt On First Day As President. She made the campaign announcement on Tuesday that she would instruct the Secretary of Education to "begin to compromise and modify federal student loans," using a so-called safety valve in the Higher Education Act. She argues that the current law would allow her government cancel the debt without passing a new bill to Congress.


A lot of Democrats are yet to buy into the idea, and Republicans are totally in opposition of the law, which will make such student loan forgiveness bill face difficulties if sent to Congress. Also, passing the new law without going through the Congress will also be met with different legal challenges as the majority will see it as Federal Government overreaching.

Senator Bernie Sanders is also proposing a similar bill, while Senator Warren is looking to cancel up to $50,000 in student loan debt, Sanders on the other hand is looking to cancel all dollars of single loan debt, irrespective of the income or debt burden.

Hillary Clinton has not given up on the race for the number one public office in the US, after new speculation that the 2016 candidate is preparing for a re-match with Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Ms. Clinton lost to President Donald Trump in an election pollsters have believed would be won by the former secretary of state and first lady. Clinton in the past week was seen at different high profile events, and also she has been asking for donation to support her cause.


In recent emails sent to her supporters, Clinton has raised her voice at different Trump administration agenda, with the latest been the immigration "zero tolerance" policy that separates kids from their mother when they arrives at the US border, seeking assylum from the US government.

The recent rants about Trump immigration policy sees the former candidate raising more than 1.5million in donations, distributed among several groups supporting the migrant children and their parents. Some of the groups that received the donations includes the American Civil Liberties Union, the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project.

Clinton is set to appear at the third annual Ozy Fest that takes place July 21 and 22 in Central Park. 

The emergence of Clinton might stoke some fire in the Democratic party as liberals are not happy that the party leader worked against Bernie Sanders to give the nomination to Clinton, who then lost the election to the then Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

There are other candidates in the Democratic party that are looking to challenge Donald Trump come 2020, and most of these candidates have gone to meet former President Barack Obama to ask for insights, and Obama has also acted as power-broker from his Washington office.

Some of the candidates that have met with Obama includes, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders,  former Vice President Joe Biden and former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. 

There are some other candidates that are rumoured for the position, though yet to meet Obama, and they includes, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Nevada Senator Kamala Harris and former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. 



Following the leaked email scandals with the Democratic party leaders favouring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator have decided to quit the Democratic party and will stay as an Independent senator.

In the recent DNC, Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton as the nominated candidate, and now that he has quit the party, Hillary Clinton would hope she would be able to hang on to the 13million people who voted for him during the party primaries.


Sander was an Independent candidate when he was elected as Vermont senator, but was accepted by the Democrats when he made his intention known for running as the United State president.

The news of Sander quitting the party and returning to being independent means that he is not looking to be in line or looking for a position in the Hillary's government. According to leaked emails last week, it's shown that senior officials, including the Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz were against Bernie Sanders campaign, and was forced to resign her position.

While Bernie Sanders decided to leave the party, he has called for more heads to roll over the party emails leak. Sanders said;

  We need a DNC which has as very different direction, I honestly don’t know many of the people there. But my guess is we’re going to need new leadership, a new direction and new personnel.

During the party convention, Sanders urged his followers to vote Hillary Clinton as the next US president, but most of Bernie supporters have joined a group called "Bernie or Bust" and have said they won't be voting Hillary in the election.



As the US Presidential election draws near, supporters of Presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders,  are saying they will not vote the Democratic party nominee, Hillary Clinton. According to some trending hashtags on Twitter, supporters of Sanders are using #StillSanders, #BernieOrBust, #SeeYouInPhilly.


According to recent polls, 25% to 50% Sanders supporters are not ready to support Clinton either as a Democratic party flag-bearer or contestant against the GOP candidate, Donald Trump. 

Sanders has said he will take up his fight to transform the Democratic Party — and the country — all the way to the party's national convention in Philadelphia in July.

In a response to a question on CNN about the #BernieOrBust movement, and that some Democratic party members said they will leave the party if Sanders is not the candidate, Bernie Sanders said;

It is Secretary Clinton’s job to explain to those people why she should ... get their support. And that means she’s going to have to address their needs



Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire democratic primary on Tuesday, defeating Hillary Clinton. This is a victory for Bernie Sanders, who was narrowly defeated by Clinton in last week Iowa caucuses.The result of the poll showed Sanders had 59.9% while Clinton had 38.4%.


While celebrating his victory, Bernie Sanders said;

Together we have sent the message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California.And that is that the government of our great country belongs to all of the people and not just a handful of wealthy contributors and their super PACs.


He applauded supporters and said that they have sent a message out, and the message they sent was;

too late for the same-old, same-old establishment politics and establishment economics. The people want real change.

Donald J. Trump also won the New Hampshire Republican primary, with a wide margin to the Ohio governor, John Kasich. 


Mounting over the stage with the song of the beatles, Revolution, Trump told supporters, "Remember, you started it!". Trump also blasted lawmakers for making bad decisions.

Ted Cruz, who won the Iowa caucuses congratulated Trump, but told his supporters "the real winner is the conservative grassroots."
