WATCH | Donald Trump's victory might seem like the end of the world to some progressives, but there are actually several issues that he and Democrats like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders can agree on. Here are a few ways we might see Congress work together and actually get stuff done.
One of Trump's main campaign promises has been to rebuild America -- specifically its crumbling bridges, roads, airports, utilities, etc.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has the same vision, and said in a statement this week that she would be willing to work closely with Trump to pass an infrastructure bill that would also create jobs.
"We have a responsibility to come together and find common ground," Pelosi said in her statement.
Pelosi said she hopes for a peaceful transition of power.
Raising the minimum wage
Trump has said he would support a $10 federal minimum wage, but ultimately wants states to decide on wage hikes. Four states voted to increase their minimum wages on election night.
A minimum wage hike could also benefit the middle-class working families that made up the bulk of Trump's voter base.
Both Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have sought to increase the federal minimum wage, and they have both said they would want to work with Trump to make it happen.
WATCH | In her first post-election speech at a meeting with the AFL-CIO, Warren said Trump could "count her in" when is comes to his goal to increase economic security for middle-class families.
NAFTA and TPP
It's no secret that Trump is not a fan of President Obama's trade policies. He's called the Trans-Pacific Partnership a "disaster" and said NAFTA was one of the worst trade deals in history.
But Warren has also been critical of America's current trade policies. In July she released a video calling on progressives to help her fight TPP, which she said benefited corporations over American people. Sanders said the deal "threatens our democracy."
Change through compromise
In order to pass legislation on these issues, Trump will likely seek compromise from progressive democrats on federal regulations on businesses and energy.
The president-elect has already said that within his first 100 days in office he plans to enact a new requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.
But if Trump doesn't keep his promises, there will be gridlock again in Washington.
WATCH | And as SNL pointed out, there are plenty of ways Trumpers and Berners might be able to get along.
