    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) vowed Wednesday to hold Trump to his promises to strengthen the working class — and fight against some of his more controversial positions and rhetoric.

    “I say to Mr. Trump, from the bottom of my heart ... Mr. Trump, we are not going backwards in terms of bigotry, we are going to go forward in creating a non-discriminatory society," Sanders said during his speech and Q&A at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

    During his talk, the Vermont senator also said that he saw some room for cooperation between the GOP and the Democrats, particularly when it comes to strengthening the middle class. 
    Sanders argued that Trump should be held accountable for his promises to support the struggling working families in America.
    "Mr. Trump said a whole lot of things, a whole lot of things and sometimes I think they would just come off the top of his head. Toward the end of the campaign he was actually using the term that many Democrats use. He was saying that he was going to be the champion of the American working
    class,"
