The Hill reports:
The statement, made on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” was an apparent acknowledgement that Clinton will win the Democratic nomination. 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.”
He said his goal right now is “to fight for the strongest possible platform in the Democratic convention.”
