Bernie Sanders, speaking on MSNBC, was asked directly if he will vote for Hillary Clinton and—in spite of refusing to endorse her as recently as yesterday—this was his response:
Yes. Yeah, I think, uh, the issue right here is, uh, I'm going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump. Uh, I think Trump, uh, in so many ways will be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected president. We do not need, uh, a president whose cornerstone of his campaign is, is bigotry, is insulting Mexicans and Latinos and, and Muslims and, and women, who does not believe in the reality of climate change, when virtually every scientist who has studied this issue understand we have a global crisis. This is not somebody who should become, uh, president. What my job right now is, is to fight for the strongest possible platform, uh, in the Democratic convention ... and that means a platform that represents working people, that stands up to big-money interests.
He would not characterize his vote as being either for her or against Trump.
Bernie also spoke with measured regret over the surprising #BREXIT victory, but wouldn't term it a mistake.
