샌더스, 힐러리 클린턴 공식 지지 선언
Bernie Sanders has endorsed his former rival Hillary Clinton for president.
In a show of party unity Tuesday, Sanders said Clinton was the best candidate to fix America’s problems and beat Donald Trump in the November election.
Park Jong-hong reports.
Bernie Sanders has buried the hatchet with his old foe Hillary Clinton and officially declared his endorsement for the presumptive Democratic nominee.
“Secretary Clinton has won the democratic nominating process and I congratulate her for that. 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.”
Speaking in New Hampshire, Sanders said Clinton would take up the fight to ease economic inequality, make college more affordable and expand healthcare coverage for all Americans.
In response, Clinton said it was a privilege to get Sanders’ support and pitched the resounding slogan “we are stronger together.”
The backing by Sanders comes two weeks ahead of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, where Clinton will be formally nominated.
Reacting to the endorsement, Donald Trump’s campaign said Sanders was now officially part of the rigged system he had criticized during his long primary battle with Clinton.
