Bernie Sanders: ‘It doesn’t appear that I’m going to be the nominee’
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders conceded this week that he was not going to be the party’s nominee.
In an C-SPAN interview that aired on Wednesday, Sanders spoke of his role at the upcoming Democratic National Convention.
“It’s hard to say,” he explained. “It doesn’t appear that I’m going to be the nominee so I’m not going to be determining the scope of the convention.”
Sanders called on Democrats to “create the most progressive platform as we possibly can reflecting the needs of working families and students and the environment, health care and so forth.”
The Vermont Senator also predicted that his supporters would not vote for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.
“The vast majority of the people who voted for me understand that Donald Trump in a dozen different ways is literally unfit to be president of the United States,” he explained. “And it’s not only his views on the issues… but mostly his making bigotry the cornerstone of this campaign.”
