Bernie Sanders has announced his endorsement of Joe Biden for president, during a virtual livestream on the US
Sanders dropped out of the Democratic primary last week.
“So today, I am asking all Americans, I’m asking every Democrat, I’m asking every independent, I’m asking a lot of Republicans, to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy, which I endorse, ”the senator from Vermont said, appearing alongside Biden, who was hosting the broadcast.
“We’ve got to make Trump a one-term president,” Sanders said. “I will do all that I can to make that happen.”
Biden, a former Delaware senator and vice-president now the presumptive Democratic nominee for the White House, thanked Sanders for his support, saying his former rival did not get “enough credit” for his accomplishments in the Democratic primary.
“If I am the nominee – which it looks like now you just made me – I really need you, not just to win the campaign but to govern,” Biden told Sanders.
