Al Jazeera's Zein Basravi reports from Tehran. Remarks by Ms. Amina J. Mohammed, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, on the 'One World: Together At Home', the global broadcast & digital special to support frontline healthcare workers and the WHO. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie joins 'America's Newsroom' to discuss the department's decision to restrict access on large groups at VA cemeteries during Memorial Day. Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the Democratic presidential race today, paving the way for former Vice President Joe Biden to win the 2020 nomination.
Sanders was unable to build on his early momentum in the race after wins in New Hampshire and Nevada as well as virtual tie in Iowa, going on to lose a string of states to Biden after the former vice president consolidated the support of moderate Democrats.
The departure marks Sanders's second failed attempt at the Democratic nomination after he came up short in his 2016 challenge against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
