US Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said today he will vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Asked if he would vote for Clinton in November, Sanders told MSNBC television: “Yes. The issue right here is I’m going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump. I think Trump in so many ways would be a disaster if he were elected president.” 

Clinton clinched the party nomination earlier in June to become the first woman in the 240-year history of the United States to lead the presidential ticket of a major political party. While Sanders had said he would work with Clinton to defeat Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, he is yet to endorse Clinton and has kept his own election campaign alive.
