Sen. Bernie Sanders spoke on Wednesday evening at George Washington University and addressed the promises President-elect Donald Trump has made.
Sanders ran through a list of some of the things that Trump promised the American people during his 2016 election and said he looks forward to working with him. He also promoted his book, "Our Revolution," and talked about his younger years.
If those promises turn out to be hollow, we will not only oppose his economic policies, we will expose the hypocrisy.
Sanders gave his thoughts on Trump's decision to hire Stephen Bannon as his chief White House strategist. The selection of Bannon, a former executive at the conservative news site Breitbart, has drawn criticism from Jewish and Muslim groups.
"The President of the United States should not have a racist by his side," Sanders said.
Sanders mentioned he would hold Trump accountable for his economic promises. He said, "We have a list of everything you said, and we are going to hold you to account. Pay attention to see what he now does -- whether or not everything he was saying to the working class of this country was hypocrisy or sincere.”
