Bernie Says He'll Vote for Hillary to Prevent 'Disastrous' Trump Presidency
— Morning Joe (@Morning_Joe) June 24, 2016
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made headlines this morning by declaring that he will vote for Hillary Clinton, explaining that he will do everything he can to stop Donald Trump from becoming president.
Will you vote for Hillary Clinton in November?
Yes. Yeah I think the issue right here is, I’m going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump. I think Trump, in so many ways, will be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected president.
The socialist candidate has not yet ended his presidential bid, but acknowledged this week that he will not be the nominee.
Sanders said on MSNBC that he's fighting right now for the "strongest possible platform" at the Democratic National Convention next month.
He said that the country cannot have a president that has made "bigotry" the cornerstone of his campaign, insults Latinos, Muslims and women and denies the "reality of climate change."
"[Trump] is not somebody who should become president."
Trump has made a plea to Sanders' supporters in recent weeks, arguing they should support him because the Democrats "rigged" the nomination for Clinton.
