US Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack earlier this week, is now ‘feeling great’ after being discharged from hospital

Recently, he had issued a statement on Kashmir where he had castigated the Indian government for the restrictions on communication and claimed that India’s actions were “unacceptable”.

The US Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack three days ago, his campaign confirmed on Friday. The Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate was released from the hospital.

The 78-year-old Senator was at a campaign event in Nevada on Tuesday when he experienced chest discomfort and was rushed to a hospital. He was transferred to Desert Springs hospital medical centre where he was diagnosed with blocked artery leading to a heart stroke.

“Sen. Sanders was diagnosed with myocardial infarction,” his doctors said in the statement on Friday, using the medical term for a heart attack. “Two stents were placed in a blocked coronary artery in a timely fashion. All other arteries were normal. His hospital course was uneventful with good expected progress,” furthered his doctors.

Soon after his discharge, Bernie took to Twitter to thank all his well-wishers and confirmed that “he felt great”.

“After two and a half days in the hospital, I feel great, and after taking a short time off, I look forward to getting back to work,” he said.

He is expected to return to Vermont and has said he plans to appear at the next Democratic debate, on 15 October.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is running for the President 2020 of the United States as a Democratic candidate. Americans will elect the next president of the United States on November 3, 2020. Twenty-three notable elected officials and public figures, 19 Democrats and four Republicans, are running for president. The most popular amongst the Democrats being Tulsi Gabbard and Donald Trump from the Republic.

Recently, he had issued a statement on Kashmir where he had castigated the Indian government for the restrictions on communication and claimed that India’s actions were “unacceptable”. The Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders further called for a “UN-backed peaceful resolution that respects the will of the people of Kashmir.”

The event where Sanders spoke was organized by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which was listed as a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Case by the US Government. The HLF and five of its prominent members were convicted by a Texas jury in 2008 for securing funds for the terrorist group Hamas.

The Far-Left Communist’s stance on Kashmir, where he appears to be toeing the line of the Jihadist state of Pakistan, ought not to surprise anyone. In the past, he has praised several violent dictatorships. In the 1980s, the praised Fidel Castro for his inhumane crimes, for which he was slammed by Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democrat Primaries.
