BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Bernie Sanders says in an address to his supporters that he will work with Hillary Clinton to transform the Democratic Party, adding that his “political revolution” must continue and ensure the defeat of Republican Donald Trump.
Sanders is telling his political followers that the major task they face is to “make certain” Trump is defeated. Sanders says he plans to begin his role in that process “in a very short period of time.”
But he says defeating Trump can’t be the only goal and he looks forward to working with Clinton to transform the Democratic Party.
