Sanders for restructuring of Democratic Party post Hillary’s 2016 loss

New York [United States], Apr. 2 : Criticising Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, Senator Bernie Sanders has said that her loss revealed the need for the fundamental restructuring of the Democratic Party.

Sanders also did not agree with some Democrats believing the voters, who backed President Donald Trump, are racists, xenophobes and deplorable.

"It wasn't that Donald Trump won the election, it was that the Democratic Party lost the election," CNN quoted Sanders as saying at a progressive rally in Boston on Friday.

He suggested for fundamental restructuring of the Democratic Party, saying that people need a Democratic Party of the working class of this country and not the liberal elite.

Sanders further said that they need a party where candidates are talking to working people and not just spending their time raising money from the wealthy and the powerful.

The Senator also said that he would introduce 'Medicare-for-all' health care proposal as legislation within the next month.

"On every major point facing this country, the American people do not believe in a right-wing agenda; they believe in a progressive agenda.

We've got to take that agenda to the people, Sanders said..
