Bernie Sanders: I Will Vote for Hillary Clinton

Bernie Sanders said that he will vote for Hillary Clinton in November, even though he has not officially ended his presidential campaign.

Appearing on “Morning Joe” on Friday, Sanders answered “Yes” when asked if he would vote for Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee.

“I think the issue right here is I’m going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump,” he said. “I think in so many ways would be a disaster for this country if he were elected president.”

On Thursday night, Sanders appeared before supporters in New York and continued to echo his campaign themes, and he talked of the fight “we are going to continue.” Sanders has suggested that his campaign is moving to a different phase of carrying his message of economic inequality and campaign finance reform. He also has been raising money for Democratic Senate and House candidates.

“What I am trying to do is develop policies in this country which stand for working people,” Sanders told CNN later on Friday morning. He also said that he wanted to press issues like climate change and college tuition.

He said that the Democratic party needed to remake itself to include working people and young voters, and criticized Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Asked if he thought Clinton would beat Trump, Sanders said that “everything being equal,” she would.
