Our job is to bring tens of millions of people together to say: number one, this is not an oligarchy, it is a democracy, number two, you're not going to split us up by attacking our Muslims friends, or our gay friends, or women, or anybody else.

"At the end of the campaign, Trump was posing as a "hero" of the working class of America", Sanders said. Bernie Sanders, who sparked a grassroots political revolution with his run for the White House and almost won the Democratic nomination for president instead of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In a roundabout way, Sanders praised the billionaire businessman and expected they could cooperate on campaign pledges to raise the minimum wage to at least $10 an hour, to force big pharmaceutical companies into lower prices for seniors and to preserve Social Security.

West Virginia Rep. Joe Manchin, whom was rumored to be considering a party switch, will serve as vice chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee.

But the party has got to transform itself to be a party that, first of all, opens the door.

Sanders responded to conflation of his leftist populism with what some perceive to be President-elect Donald Trump's rightist populism.

The Vermont Senators comments come after he penned an Op-Ed in the New York Times Saturday that called the vote for Republican Donald Trump a protest vote because Americans fiercely oppose an economic and political system that puts wealthy and corporate interests over their own.

Sanders's allies say he would be a good choice for the third-ranking position because he had phenomenal success mobilizing voters during the Democratic presidential primaries. "People ask me every day, what do we do now?" Any party that loses an election to a guy like Trump needs to change what it's doing.
