Sen. Bernie Sanders reveals that he plans to vote for his primary rival Hillary Clinton for president — two weeks after she claimed the nomination during a speech in Brooklyn.
Sanders revealed his decision during an interview on Morning Joe after he was asked if he would vote for Clinton in November.
“Yes,” Sanders replied, voicing his concern about Donald Trump. “We do not need a president who’s cornerstone of his campaign is bigotry, is insulting Mexicans and Latinos and Muslims and women.”
Sanders said he would continue working to make the Democrats “a party that represents working people, not Wall Street.”
However Sanders indicated during an interview with CBS Morning on Friday that he hadn’t endorsed Clinton yet “because I haven’t heard her say the things that need to be said.”
“She will do what she wants to do,” Sanders said, but urged Clinton to speak out more about free health care, free college, and a higher minimum wage.
But Sanders remained elusive about whether he would endorse Clinton.
“We’re talking,” he said.
