A lot of Democrats were fond of Bernie Sanders and, as a matter of fact, he and Trump had a lot of things in common. Both of them share the same ideas about eradicating the establishment and keeping jobs in America. Because of this connection of the two, many of Sanders’ followers supported Trump when Sanders lost to Hillary in a dishonest way.
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,” stated Bernie.
What do you think of this unexpected turn of events for Hillary? It seems that that from now on, everything is will be going downhill for her. Do you think that Trump and Sanders can come to terms and work together to make this nation great again?
