Bernie Sanders was loved by many Democrats and he actually had a lot in common with Trump.
They have the same opinions on destroying the establishment and stopping jobs from going overseas. Many of his disenfranchised voters moved to support Trump after Hillary cheated in order to beat him.
Many were surprised and disgusted that he endorsed Hillary. However, now that Hillary is out of the picture he expressed his respect and interest in working with Trump.
“Donald Trump tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media,” started Sanders.
“People are tired of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids – all while the very rich become much richer,” he said.
“To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him.
To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him,” said Sanders.
