Democracy for America executive director Charles Chamberlain went after the Republican's "bigoted" agenda in a statement shortly after Trump was declared the president-elect.


"After the most divisive presidential election in the nation's history, the divide in this country will be between those who attempt to accommodate Donald Trump's fringe-right, bigoted agenda and those who will fight him every step of the way," Chamberlain said.

"So, let's be absolutely clear: Democracy for America will do everything in our power to obstruct, delay, and halt the attacks on people of color, women, and working families that will emerge from a Trump administration," he added.

The statement went on to place part of the blame for Trump's victory at the feet of the "political establishment."

"We are more convinced than ever that our country needs a massive, multi-racial, multi-generational progressive political revolution led by women and people of color that is not beholden to the broken political establishment that brought us to this moment," he added.

"And that's precisely what we'll work with our members and our allies to build in the days, weeks, and months ahead."
