Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a self-described socialist who recently announced his bid for the 2020 presidential election as a Democrat, has amassed a personal fortune that includes three homes and millions of dollars in the bank.
Sanders announced his candidacy for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday, branding himself as a “grassroots” left-wing socialist who advocates for “economic” and “social” justice.
Campaign - Country - Government - Principles - Justice
“Our campaign is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice,” he said.
But despite Sanders’ efforts to position himself as your average man of the people, Sanders has a history of acquiring millions of dollars in property and assets.

Sanders also made more than $1 million from book royalties and cash advances, according to a 2018 Breitbart News report on financial disclosures of the Vermont senator’s income from 2017.
