It isn’t sour grapes since Bernie Sanders didn’t have a chance at beating Donald Trump. Had he, he would have. It’s just that Bernie recognizes and isn’t afraid to verbalize his concerns about the potential of a Trump administration. One of the last major politicians to release a statement, this is what he said:
“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.”
I don’t want to put words in his mouth, but it is almost as if the inference is that Donald Trump’s rants of change may have picked up some of the Revolution’s supporters when Bernie was beaten by Hillary Clinton. He added this to the above:
“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-environmental policies, we will vigorously oppose him.”
It is obvious that Bernie Sanders, The Revolution, and staunch Progressives will cautiously eye the movements of the President-elect. This blog will be devoted to that mandate in the future.
