Bernie Sanders Vows to Go On, Do ‘Everything in My Power’ to Defeat Donald Trump

UPDATED: Bernie Sanders, after meeting with President Barack Obama in the White House on Thursday, said that he would continue to compete in next Tuesday’s Democratic primary in Washington and that he would do “everything in my power” to defeat Donald Trump.

Sanders also said that he looks “forward to meeting” with Hillary Clinton to “see how we can work together toward defeating Donald Trump.”

Obama endorsed Clinton for president shortly after their meeting.

Sanders stopped short of saying that he would contest the primary results at the Democratic National Convention in July. Instead, he framed the gathering as a place where he will bring a number of issues he highlighted during his campaign, including income inequality and campaign finance.

In his short statement on the White House grounds, Sanders emphasized the need to defeat Trump, who he called a “disaster” for the country.

“It is unbelievable to me that the Republican Party would have a candidate for president who in 2016 makes bigotry and discrimination the cornerstone of his campaign,” Sanders said.

Sanders also said that he was waiting to see the full vote count from California’s primary and predicted that it would narrow. The current results show that Clinton defeated Sanders by a 13-point margin. But Sanders supporters say that many provisional and absentee ballots remain to be counted.
