Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton, says will help her win

Hillary Clinton set to meet with Senate Democrats

'Unity is hard' 1. Is she clapping for Sanders or herself? 3. See, that wasn't so bad, right?

Hillary Clinton will meet with Senate Democrats at a policy luncheon Thursday on Capitol Hill, a Democratic source told CNN, part of her efforts to coalesce party support around her campaign.

In contrast, Sanders pointed out that Donald Trump believes that states should have the right to lower minimum or even abolish the concept of minimum wage.

Sanders praised President Obama but said far too many Americans have been "left out, left behind, and ignored" during his administration.

Bernie Sanders stand together during a campaign rally where Sanders endorsed Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, U.S., July 12, 2016.

"Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding president, and I am proud to stand with her here today", he said.

Sanders said Clinton must become the next president because she can take on issues like income inequality, climate change and student debt. He responded, "Because I haven't heard her say the things I think need to be said".

Progressive political organizations are following Sanders in throwing their support behind Clinton, including MoveOn.org, which endorsed the Vermont senator during the primary.

Sanders announced his endorsement two weeks before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Recent polls have shown that many Sanders voters plan to back Clinton but have reservations about her honesty. Sanders also tried to get the party to formally oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but that was ultimately not included in the platform. "We are stronger together".

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., accompanied by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"I am somewhat surprised that Bernie Sanders was not true to himself and his supporters", Trump wrote shortly afterwards.

Trump, who previously said Sanders has been "treated terribly by the Democrats" and should have run as an independent, wasted no time going after the Vermont senator.
