Cornel West: Running for US president, ending Ukraine war, and taking on ‘corporate duopoly’ of Dems and GOP

Cornel West, the iconic academic and social critic, has declared his candidacy for president of the United States in the 2024 election.

He is running with the People’s Party, a progressive alternative to the two major parties that grew out of Bernie Sanders’s 2016 campaign.

With 2024 shaping up to be a rematch between “neofascist” Donald Trump and “milquetoast neoliberal” Joe Biden, West says voters need a real alternative focused on tackling inequality, racism, war and corporate greed.

“There’s an indifference to the plight of the vulnerable,” West tells Democracy Now! He also discusses the war in Ukraine, censorship, right-wing extremism, and allegations of sexual harassment and assault against People’s Party founder Nick Brana, among other topics.

He don’t have a prayer. Trump is leading the pack. Progressives are far behind.
