A Statement by Bernie Sanders, Reader Supported News
Posted November 10th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Vermont Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders released the following statement this past Wednesday, November 9th after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. –
“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.
“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.
“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.”
In a separate message Bernie Sanders sent out this November 10th on Twitter, he had this warning for Trump on behalf of himself and other progressives on the Democratic side of the aisle. –
“If Donald Trump takes people’s anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare.”
