Bernie Sanders has announced he will vote for his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in November’s presidential election.
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have fought for the Democratic nomination, which the former secretary of state won this month.
Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist, told MSNBC he would do everything in his power to defeat the likely Republican nominee, Donald Trump.
However, he stopped short of saying he would end his campaign.
However, he dismissed the idea that he should withdraw from the race.
“Why would I want to do that when I want to fight to make sure that we have the best platform that we possibly can, that we win the most delegates that we can,” Bernie Sanders said.
Although Hillary Clinton has won enough of the all-important delegates to secure the nomination, she will not be declared the official nominee until July’s convention.
The Vermont senator has failed to give Hillary Clinton a full endorsement.
Last week Bernie Sanders vowed to work with Hillary Clinton to prevent Donald Trump from winning the White House and promised to continue his fight to “transform” the Democratic party.
When asked if his decision to remain in the race hindered Hillary Clinton’s chances in the general election, Bernie Sanders said: “You talk about disunity, I talk about people in the political process and wanting to have a government and party that represents all of us.”
