Bernie Sanders, scrapping for every last delegate in the Democratic nomination race against Hillary Clinton, brought his populist message to Puerto Rico on Monday, where he urged the Federal Reserve to help the commonwealth restructure its debt and denounced austerity measures being proposed for the island.

“If the Federal Reserve could bail out Wall Street, it can help the 3.5 million American citizens of Puerto Rico,” Sanders said in San Juan, where he was making several appearances during the day.
