Bernie Sanders Endorses Hillary For President

​ 'I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States'


As the US election draws ever nearer, the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump becomes heated as the endorsements start piling up.

Last week Congressman Earl L. Carter made a speech formally endorsing Trump for president, and many republicans have shown their support for Trump. 

Now, the democrats are starting to join together, as Bernie Sanders, the man who pitted himself against Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination, has endorsed Clinton.


During a speech given in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Sanders said '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.'


Whilst it may originate from a strong dislike of Trump, rather than a sense of full support for Hillary, the result is the same. On whether or not Trump should become president, Sanders said 'I cannot in good conscience let that happen' reports USA today.

Sanders and Clinton are famed for disagreeing on several issues, yet Sanders has made a choice to support Clinton's bid for president and encourage his supporters to do the same.

Sanders told supporters, 'our goal will be to advance the progressive agenda that we believe in and to elect like-minded candidates at the federal, state and local levels who are committed to accomplishing our goals.'

In response, Clinton assured the crowd that she would be pushing forward the issues that Sanders prioritised in his own campaign, such as combating climate change, enforcing regulations on Wall Street and raising the minimum wage.

By identifying Clinton as the progressive option, Sanders has assured the U.S. nation that Clinton will appeal to the democrats that supported him for the nominee, and that she is able to 'continue the political revolution.'

The sense of mutual support is unusual in politics, and the Democrat party are presenting a united front ahead of the election.
