On Friday morning, Bernie Sanders said he will vote for Hillary Clinton for president.
The statement, made on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” was an answer as to whether Bernie would vote for Clinton, but Sanders has not said he will end his bid for president.
After saying “yes” when asked whether he would vote for Clinton, Sanders quickly pivoted to slamming presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
“I think the issue right here is I’m gonna do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump,” he said, saying Trump would be “a disaster for this country if he were to be elected.”
“We do not need a president whose cornerstone of his campaign is bigotry,” Sanders continued. “This is not somebody who should become president.”
While Sanders said his goal right now is “to fight for the strongest possible platform in the Democratic convention,” Clinton’s campaign is funded by corrupt Wall Street bankers and she supports invading Syria and passing the economy-destroying Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), all actions Bernie ran to oppose.
