The debate moderators asked about Sanders tweet from September last year where he said: “billionaires should not exist.”
Eventually, Sanders elaborated on his stance as he stood just feet away from Michael Bloomberg.
“We have a grotesque and immoral distribution of wealth and income,” Sanders said.
“Mike Bloomberg owns more wealth than the bottom 125 million Americans.
We cannot continue seeing the situation where in the last three years billionaires in this country saw an $850 billion increase in their wealth.

Sanders and Bloomberg have become foils of one another in the 2020 Democratic nomination process and got into a Twitter spat earlier this week. »
