Sen. Bernie Sanders urged his supporters to back Hillary Clinton, saying his key issues stand a better chance under President Clinton rather than a President Donald Trump, NBC News reported.
"I would tell all of my supporters, and we got over 13 million votes, to take a hard look at the issues impacting the American people," Sanders said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "Which candidate, for example, wants to overturn this disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which allows billionaires to buy elections and is undermining American democracy? That is Hillary Clinton's position."
Sanders said he takes issue with Trump’s economic plans and contended that the Republican nominee was running a campaign “based on bigotry.”
The former Democratic nominee said he would ask supporters to “get away from the personality conflicts that media tries to bring forward.”
