Bernie Sanders just delivered a major speech on progressive foreign policy at Westminster College in Fulton, MO. The event took place at 11AM CT/Noon ET.

Westminster College is significant as Winston Churchill gave his “Iron Curtain” speech here in the 1946. Presidents Reagan and Trump spoke here, as did the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

The auditorium was full, about 1300 people, not counting the faculty, students, and Bernie on the platform.
Today is also International Peace Day, so another reason this speech will be significant. #PeaceDay2017 is already trending on Twitter.

Keep discussing though! Speech may be over, but lots of food for thought in this speech!
