Sanders Again Calls For His Supporters to Back Joe Biden

Bernie Sanders supporters weren’t too happy with the way things went down in 2016. Many felt that their candidate wasn’t given a fair shot. In turn, some stayed away from the voting booth and Donald Trump won the election in a colossal upset.

The Vermont senator has been proactive in making sure the same thing doesn’t happen in 2020. Sanders has already begun to work with Joe Biden on pushing things that are important to his supporters. And on Sunday morning, he again called on his voting block to support the Democratic candidate.

Sanders backed Biden in mid-April saying to the candidate, “It’s no great secret out there, Joe, that you and I have our differences, and we’re not going to paper them over. That’s real. But I hope that these task forces will come together utilizing the best minds and people in your campaign and in my campaign to work out real solutions to these very, very important problems.”

On Sunday ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked Sanders about Biden’s hope to unify the party. “What does the vice president have to do about that?”

Sanders responded by calling Trump, “the most dangerous president in the modern history.”

The Vermont senator continued, “I think at the end of the day the vast majority of the people who voted for me, who supported me…I think they’ll be voting for Joe.”

Sanders then said, “I think they are going to reach out to our supporters and come up with agenda that speaks to the needs of working families, of young families, of minority communities.”
