Like go. Thank you. Thank you. I do. Thank you. Thank you, New Hampshire. Thank you. You have Jerde. Let me let me take this opportunity to thank the people of New Hampshire for a great victory tonight. And let me thank the thousands of volunteers in New Hampshire. Thank you. Who knocked on doors in the rain and the snow and the cold. The reason that we won tonight in New Hampshire, we won last week in Iowa.
It's because of the hard work of so many volunteers. And let me say tonight. That this victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump. With with victories behind us, popular vote in Iowa and the victory here tonight, we're going to Nevada. We're going to South Carolina. We're going to win those states as well. And tonight, I want to take the opportunity. To express my appreciation and respect for all of the Democratic candidates, we ran against people to judge.
Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, and what I can tell you with absolute certainty, and I know I speak for every one of the Democratic candidates, is that no matter who wins and we certainly hope it's going to be us, we are going to unite together. We are going to unite together and defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country. And the reason I believe we are going to win is that we have an unprecedented grass roots movement from coast to coast.
Of millions of people. The reason that we are going to win is that we are putting together an unprecedented multi-generational, multi-racial political movement. And this is a movement from coast to coast which is demanding that we finally have an economy and a government that works for all of us, not wealthy campaign contributors. And I want to thank all of those people who have worked and contributed to our campaign. But make the point that in this point in the campaign, we are taking on billionaires and we're taking on candidates funded by billionaires.
But we are going to win because we have the agenda that speaks to the needs of working people throughout this country.
Health care is a human right, not a privilege. The wealthy and powerful will stop paying their fair share of taxes. We will make public colleges and universities to whichin free and cancel all student debt. Unlike Donald Trump, we know that climate change is very real and an existential crisis for our planet. We are prepared to tell the fossil fuel industry that their short term profits are not more important than the future of our planet. We are going to end a racist and broken criminal justice system.
We are going to pass comprehensive immigration reform. I want gun safety policies will be determined by the American people, not the NRA. And under our administration, it will be women, not the government, who control their own lives. Now, our campaign is not just about beating Trump. It is about transforming this country. It is about having the courage to take on Wall Street. The insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, the military industrial complex.
So tonight, I want to thank the people of New Hampshire for this great victory, thank our volunteers and urge all Americans to join our effort to transform this country at Bernie Sanders dot com. It's on to Nevada. It's on to South Carolina. It's on to win the Democratic nomination. And together. And together, I have no doubt that we will defeat Donald Trump. Thank you all very much.
