MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS — Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared before a sold-out crowd at Riverside Church Monday night to tell the Democratic Party, “I told you so” in an area that overwhelmingly rejected his bid for president.

“Not everybody, especially my colleagues in Washington, are happy to hear this. It wasn’t that Trump won the election. It was that the Democratic Party lost the election,” he told over 1,000 people Monday night at an event to promote his new book inside the church on 120th Street and Riverside Drive.
