Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders Pledge to Work With Trump on Economic Issues | Liberty Blitzkrieg:
"... I want Trump to be successful because our fellow countrymen and women need him to succeed.
...In order to be a truly great president, Trump needs to unite as many Americans as possible around his agenda.
On the positive front, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have both pledged to work with Trump in order to help our less fortunate fellow citizens get back on the right track.
I really hope this happens.
...In a speech at the nation’s largest labor federation, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Americans are right to be angry that “Washington dithers and spins and does the backstroke in an ocean of money, while the American Dream moves further and further out of reach for too many families.”
She credited Trump for spotlighting the problem.
“President-Elect Trump spoke to these issues. Republican elites hated him for it. But he didn’t care,” she told the AFL-CIO. “So let me be 100 percent clear about this.
When President-Elect Trump wants to take on these issues, when his goal is to increase the economic security of middle class families, then count me in.
I will put aside our differences and I will work with him to accomplish that goal.
I offer to work as hard as I can and to pull as many people as I can into this effort.
If Trump is ready to go on rebuilding economic security for millions of Americans, so am I and so are a lot of other people-Democrats and Republicans.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, expressed a similar sentiment.
“Trump tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media,” he said in a press release.
“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.”
This would be a very good thing for Trump’s Presidency and for America as a whole.
