Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, one of several presidential candidates who did not qualify for the latest Democratic debate, spoke with NewsHour Weekend about the issues driving his decision to enter the 2020 race “later, but not late.” He joins Yamiche Alcindor from the campaign trail.
If we're going to unite the country, then we need to focus on what the real problems are— not wine caves. The issue isn’t wealth. It's greed. We have a system that enables people to hoard all of the better benefits among the few, and that needs to change. https://t.co/7KdLwG1G2p

'What's quite clear, even if you do trust the polling out there, is that there are other candidates who've been in for a long time, spent a lot of money and a lot of time, and it's still a wide open race,' @DevalPatrick tells @Yamiche about his 2020 bid. https://t.co/1ZptlxwOFC
