    The former contender for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination and US Senator Bernie Sanders warned President-elect Donald Trump to steer clear from transferring dissatisfaction among the American people onto minorities and women during his tenure in office.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) —  The statement appeared on Sanders' Twitter on Thursday.

    "If Donald Trump takes people's anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare."

    ​Sanders claimed that Trump tapped into the anger felt among many members of America’s middle class.

    "We can't be a party which cozies up to Wall Street, raises money from billionaires and stands with working families. We've got to pick a side," Sanders wrote of the Democratic Party.

    ​The senator added that the party needs to focus on the issues important to grassroots America, not the wealthy.

    On Wednesday, Sanders said he is ready to work with President-elect Donald Trump.
