Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders formally declared an end to their political rivalry Tuesday, joining forces to take on a shared enemy: Donald Trump.
“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,”
Sanders said at a joint rally in New Hampshire.
“Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nomination and I congratulate her for that.”
Mr Sanders hopes to have a large influence on the Democratic platform.
“She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States,”
“This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face. And there is no doubt in my mind that, as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is far and away the best candidate to do that.”
Some Sanders supporters booed at the joint rally and Mr Sanders appeared to motion them to stop. At the end of Mrs Clinton’s remarks, the two shared a hug and smiled.
