Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein appeared on RT America’s Sophie&Co. with Sophie Shevardnadze earlier this week, discussing foreign policy, the presidential debates, Sen. Bernie Sanders’s Democratic presidential bid, race and the Black Lives Matter movement, and other issues. The complete interview, which runs 24 minutes, is available online.
Stein told Shevardnadze, “If I can get elected, I have a mandate and I have a lot of people to work with; Barack Obama mobilized ground troops in order to get elected, but the moment he got elected he put them on a shelf, because they were entirely contrary to what his true agenda was. If I’m able to get elected, I will continue to work that base and that base would be mobilized for every agenda item that we have from the get-go.”
