Bernie’s Press Release – I’m with Bernie

BURLINGTON, Vt., Nov. 9 – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement Wednesday 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.”

— Bernie Sanders

  1. I always was and am sure he could have won — he had the youth vote which Hlllary did not. Shame on The Washington Post for their op ed dismissal of him from the start. He didn’t have a chance without press coverage, and the MSM knew it. NOW the pundits think the same thing. Too late, guys. Any lessons learned here. Must believe they did.
