Watch: 2020 Democratic presidential candidates answer Christian leaders' question about poverty

Tom Steyer

The billionaire hedge fund manager and philanthropist said today’s America has “prioritized corporate greed over grace and mercy.”

“If we had prioritized loving our neighbors over short term profits, we wouldn’t see lead in the water in Flint, Michigan, we wouldn’t see children locked up in cages and we wouldn’t see millions of families going hungry,” Steyer said. 

“My vision for America centers on building an equitable future for the most marginalized.”

Steyer said that there must be structural reform to “prioritize people over profits.”

“The good book tells us, ‘Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then, your light will shine out from the darkness and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon,’” Steyer said."

“I am running to work alongside the Circle of Protection and all those who hunger for justice for the least of us,” he said. “Thank you for keeping true to the Great Commandment of loving our neighbors as ourselves.”
