Left-wing Democrats Sanders, Warren extend olive branch to Trump

Like Bernie Sanders, who denounced what he called the corrupt influence of the country's wealthy elites on politics, Donald Trump honed a populist appeal“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,” the Vermont senator said in a statement following the Republican billionaire’s surprise victory, which has sent shockwaves through the United States and around the world. “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,” added Sanders, the left-leaning independent who called for a political revolution during his surprisingly strong but ultimately failed populist primary challenge to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Like Sanders — who denounced what he called the corrupt influence of the country’s wealthy elites on politics, and advocated free public college education and universal health care — Trump honed a populist appeal to Americans who feel left behind by economic globalization and mounting inequity.
