He may not have been hired to run the country, but Bernie Sanders could certainly make a career out of motivational speaking. The Vermont senator and former Democratic presidential candidate has remained noticeably vocal since losing out on last year's run for the White House. While he continues to fight for his ideals in Congress, Sanders' motivational tweets remind his supporters not to lose hope during the Trump era.

These days, Sanders is back in Congress, but he still spends a fair amount of time on the campaign trail — er, road. Shortly after the November election, Sanders released a new book. It's fittingly called Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In, piggy-backing off the sensational campaign that he ran last year. Although he didn't win the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, Sanders earned grassroots support from young voters and small donors across the country, making a name for himself and his platform. Now, he's promoting the book and his success through a book tour, and his stops in various cities sometimes look more like campaign rallies than book signings.

Sanders' hopeful message goes beyond the title of his new book. It's also in the tweets he shares online to his millions of followers. In 140-character bursts, Sanders reminds those followers not to let their discouragement with the Trump administration become inaction.
