During an interview with CNN, Jane Sanders, wife of Bernie Sanders, dismissed any speculation that her husband was considering another bid for the White House in 2020.
Jane Sanders goes on to explain that the reason why she is dismissing the speculations surrounding Bernie Sanders 2020 is not because her husband doesn’t want to run for President, but because there is too much going on right now that people need to worry about. Basically, Jane feels that her husband will worry about putting in a bit for the 2020 election when election time rolls around. Until then, she believes her husband has bigger and more important things to worry about and focus on.

“See? That’s exactly the wrong question, Wolf,” Jane Sanders said in response to the CNN interviewer Wolf Blitzer to a question regarding whether or not Bernie Sanders would put in a bid for the Democratic nominee slot in 2020.
“Nobody cares except the political pundits. He is not — he’s concerned about 2017.”
Jane Sanders went on to reveal that instead of focusing on whether or not Bernie will put in a bid for the 2020 election, her husband wants to focus on healing the currently divided country following such a bitter and ugly campaign.
“He’s concerned about our Muslim population in feeling great fear right now. We’re hoping that President-elect Trump will give them a reason to not feel that anymore.”
Jane Sanders goes on to explain that her husband Bernie is concerned that people are hurting. She used the Flint water issues as an example of a problem that has yet to be fixed.
“What happens in 2020 will happen in 2020.”
Jane was a top aide as well as an adviser during her husband’s bid for the White House in the previous election. Today, Jane is heavily involved in her husband’s political organization. Jane Sanders wraps up the interview talking about her “one hope” being that President Trump will represent the working people the way they deserve to be represented.

Sanders went on to reveal that he believes Donald Trump is a “fraud.” The statement Bernie Sanders made calling Trump a “fraud” caught people a little off guard considering the day before he said he was willing to work with Trump in order to help working families with their problems.
