Bernie Sanders said Clinton lost to Donald Trump because the Democratic Party no longer works for working people. It works for Wall Street billionaires. Specifically, Sanders told the Associated Press,
“It is an embarrassment, I think, to the entire Democratic Party that millions of white working-class people decided to vote for Mr. Trump, which suggests that the Democratic message of standing up for working people no longer holds much sway among workers in this country.”
“You cannot be a party which on one hand says we’re in favor of working people, we’re in favor of the needs of young people, but we don’t quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class. People do not believe that. You’ve got to decide which side you’re on.”
US Senator Elizabeth Warren also said of Trump’s win, “There are millions of people who did not vote for Donald Trump because of the bigotry and hate that fueled his campaign rallies. They voted for him despite hate. They voted for him out of frustration and anger — and also out of hope that he would bring change.”
