NEW YORK – Even though he has not dropped out the Democratic presidential race, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) said Friday morning on MSNBC he will vote for Hillary Clinton in November. Since early June, Clinton has been the Democratic presumptive nominee for president.

“Yes,” the Vermont senator said when asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” if he would vote for the former secretary of state this fall. “I think the issue right here is I’m gonna do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump.”

“Donald Trump is not going to win. And he is not going to win, because the American people will not elect somebody who is a bigot,” Sanders said. “And I would hope that Secretary Clinton begins to understand that she has got to stand up and take on the big money interests, whose greed is doing so much harm to our country and make it clear to those low income people, those working people, that she is on their side.”

Even though Sanders cannot mathematically will the Democratic presidential nomination, he has stayed in the race to influence the party’s platform that will be adopted at the Democratic National Convention that will be held in late July in Philadelphia.

In recent weeks as it became apparent Sanders would not win the nomination, the Vermont senator has said on several ocassions he would work seven days per week to make sure Donald Trump is not elected president of the United States.
