But Clinton shafted Sanders to gain the Democrat nomination.
Clinton then picked the relatively unknown Tim Kaine as her Vice-President when it was clear Sanders as VP was a winner.
This pissed off a lot of Bernie supporters, and Trump pleaded for those disgruntled Bernie supporters to vote for him, while he portrayed himself as the anti-establishment outsider out to drain the swamp.
And here is another way that Clinton lost the election : she ignored Bernie supporters' advice.
“They fucking ignored us on all these [three] battleground states [while] we were sounding the alarm for months,” Nomiki Konst, a progressive activist and former Sanders surrogate who served on the 2016 Democratic National Committee platform committee, told The Daily Beast. “We kept saying to each other like, ‘What the fuck, why are they just blowing us off? They need these voters more than anybody.’”

Throughout the campaign Trump was promising that he would lock Clinton up. The alt-right were pushing for Bill to be locked up too for rape. But just a week or so ago he said that he was not that interested in that anymore.
And throughout the campaign Trump promised that he would drain the swamp but so far his picks consist of members of Bilderberg, CFR, Skull and Bones, Goldman Sachs, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Jamestown Foundation.
Towards the end of the campaign, with Clinton still holding a significant lead and favourite to win, the FBI said they found some more suspicious emails, which turned out to be not that suspicious, but this produced a significant swing to Trump.
Thus, this was the anyone-but-Sanders election.
Clinton shafted Bernie with the full knowledge that she was not the chosen one this year. The deal is that Trump would use the Clintons' alleged criminality against them but nothing would be done about it.
So why was this the anyone-but-Sanders election?
Because Sanders would have destroyed Wall Street and tamed Israel, and he would have the support to do it.
Trump's administration so far suggests that Trump will do the exact opposite: Trump will unleash Wall Street and give Israel the green light to do anything it wants.
