“If Mr. Trump has the guts to stand up to those corporations, he will have an ally with me,” Sanders said. “There is an area where we will not compromise of one iota. We will not compromise on the issues of racism, on sexism, or xenophobia and Islamophobia,” he declared.
Senator Bernie Sanders says he’s ready to work with President-elect Donald Trump to crack down on corporate greed, but won’t give an inch on bigotry. Democrats lost because they ignored the plight of workers and must address that to recover, Sanders said.
Sanders, who mounted a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination but lost out to Hillary Clinton, is on a whirlwind tour of Washington, DC this week, promoting his new book, Our Revolution. On Wednesday, the Senate Democrats appointed him Chair of Outreach, seeking to repair the party still reeling from last week’s defeat in the general election.
