This is America and we aren’t going to throw out 11 million people who are undocumented. We’re not going to turn against one of the largest religions in the world, people who are Muslims.
“I do not want to see Muslim kids – and we are hearing about this already – who feel frightened living in the country where they grew up. Who feel intimidated in the country where they grew up. That is not America.
“We do not want to continue the attacks against women that were so prominent in Trump’s campaign.
“I will vigorously oppose him if he appeals to racism, or sexism, or some of the other discriminatory measures that he brought up during his campaign.
‘The election is over and we have to look to the future. What we have got to demand is that Mr Trump keeps the promises that he made to working families.
“He talked about how he was going to be a champion to working families. I hope he will raise the minimum wage so that people who were working for nine or ten bucks an hour get the kind of raise they’re entitled to.
“I hope he will do pay equality for women. Women should not be getting paid 79 cents on the dollar compared to men.
“Let’s deal with the real issues. The rich are getting richer. We are moving towards an oligarchy form of society where a handful of billionaires control the economy and as a result control our political system, to a degree, and our media. There is a lot of work to be done, but let’s not take out our frustration against the poor or minorities.”
“If Donald Trump takes people’s anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare,” he added.
