Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton, says will help her win

In a statement, the Trump campaign said Sanders was now officially part of the rigged system he had criticised during the long primary battle with Clinton.

'Unity is hard' 1.

Clinton said that in recent weeks she has worked with Sanders on plans "so future students won't have to borrow a dime to attend public colleges or universities" and on "expanding Social Security to match today's realities, not cut or privatize it". Sanders chose to endorse Clinton on Tuesday after he had worked to push more progressive policy in the official Democratic platform. Even the Green Party's Jill Stein offered Sanders the top of the party's ticket if he wanted to join.

He also spoke on teaming up with Secretary Clinton to continue their efforts towards a "political revolution", while fighting for needed changes that will result in a government "based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice".

Accepting the endorsement of her primary rival, Clinton said she was happy to be working with someone who has energized the primary process.

"She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States", said Sanders.

The endorsement comes after a campaign in which Sanders has had quite a lot to be proud of.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has been trying to attract Sanders' supporters to his campaign, fired off two tweets ahead of the endorsement. "I am prepared to answer, to release all of the transcripts of the speeches to Wall Street that I gave". By joining forces with the Democratic party's 2016 nominee he has become a kingmaker.

"I feel great", Pfau said.

"I want to see companies have to do more to employ already qualified Americans", she said. "Hillary Clinton understands that if someone in America works 40 hours a week, that person should not be living in poverty".

"We are stronger when we have each others' backs".

Trump, who has courted Sanders' backers as the primaries have winded down, wasted little time going after Sanders, accusing him of capitulating to Clinton.

"It is no secret that Hillary Clinton and I disagree on a number of issues".
