“We deserve someone who writes the damn bill,” Tlaib said, echoing a Sanders’ catchphrase about his Medicare for All legislation. “We deserve Bernie Sanders.”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, of Michigan, has officially given her endorsement to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the 2020 presidential election. She now joins two other members of the progressive group “the squad” in backing Sanders.

Tlaib gave her endorsement on Sunday during a rally with the democrat hopeful in Detroit, MI. Sanders came to Michigan to tour Tlaib’s district and see where she grew up.

“We deserve someone who writes the damn bill,” Tlaib said, echoing a Sanders’ catchphrase about his Medicare for All legislation. “We deserve Bernie Sanders.”

Sanders campaign also released a video on Sunday showing Tlaib explain her endorsement of Sanders for president.

“He’s not going to sell us out,” the young Democrat from Detroit said in the video. “He understands that it’s just not about policies and about words, but it’s going to be also about completely transforming the structures in place that are hurting American people.”
