After Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday said he was confident that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will endorse Hillary Clinton, the Vermont senator insisted that he is still not ready to back the presumptive Democratic nominee.
“I talked to Joe, I think it was three weeks ago,” Sanders said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” when asked about Biden’s comment. “On that issue, we are trying to work with Secretary Clinton’s campaign on areas that we can agree on.”
Biden told NPR in an interview published earlier in the day, “I’ve talked to Bernie, Bernie’s going to endorse her, this is going to work out.”
After Sanders told Hayes that he will do everything he can to make sure Donald Trump does not become president, Hayes asked if that would involve campaigning for Clinton.
In response, Sanders said that he is working with Democrats on the party platform.
“We are working with the Clinton campaign, trying to be able to come forward and say to my supporters out there, ‘You know what? Here’s the progress that we have made,'” Sanders said. “I hope that we can reach that goal. We are not there at this moment.”
