While Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders hasn’t thrown in the towel just yet on the election race, he admits he thinks he probably won’t become a Democratic nominee, according to a recent interview he did with C-SPAN this week.
“It doesn’t appear that I’m going to be the nominee, so I’m not going to determine the scope of the convention,” Sanders said
Since then, Sanders appeared this morning (June 24) on MSNBC’s Morning Joe where he professed that even if he isn’t elected himself, he will indeed vote for Hillary Clinton in the general elections in November.

“I think that the issue right here is I’m going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump,” he said. “I think Trump in so many ways will be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected president. We do not need a president whose cornerstone of his campaign is bigotry.”
In addition to this, he also mentioned he stayed in the Democratic race after Clinton received a suitable amount of delegates to cement a nomination because that way, he would still be fighting for the “strongest possible platform.”
Sander’s main focus is to bridge the gap concerning all the issues that affect some of our countries’ most vulnerable constituents, like raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Essentially even as the campaigns end, he assures that “political and social revolutions continue.”
