Bernie Sanders warned Donald Trump that progressives will work to block “racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies” in his first statement after Trump’s victory. The Vermont senator, who lost his bid for the presidency to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries, offered an explanation for Tuesday’s election alongside cautionary words for the President-elect. “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,” Sanders 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.”
