They’ve called a truce!
Bernie Sanders has formally backed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic party’s candidate for president during a rally in Portsmith, New Hampshire on Tuesday. Despite his sparring with Clinton over the past year, Sanders declared an end to their political rivalry in order to defeat their common enemy: Donald Trump.
Sanders said in the joint rally, “I have come here to make it as clear as possible why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president. Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nomination and I congratulate her for that.”
The 74-year-old democratic socialist said,”I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States.”
Sanders made a 30-minute speech pledging his support to Clinton and some of the things that she agreed to during their recent talks.
Eventually, Clinton took the stage and said, “We are joining forces to defeat Donald Trump! I can’t help but say how much more enjoyable this election is going to be when we are on the same side. You know what? We are stronger together!”
Hip-hip hooray! CLINTON IN 2016!
