Sanders says he will vote for Clinton

The presidential candidate has not dropped out of the race, but says he would vote for Clinton if it comes down to it.

Sanders, Clinton

United States presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has said he will vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, American cable network MSNBC reported.

In an interview with the network on Friday, Sanders said his main goal is to defeat presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and he will therefore vote for Clinton if it comes down to it. 

Sanders has not dropped out of the race; nominally he is still in it.

Despite Clinton's claim of victory, Sanders has vowed to take his campaign all the way to the Democrats' July 25-28 convention in Philadelphia, when the official nomination will take place.

Sanders has built his campaign on a promise of tackling economic inequality, which he says is caused by large corporations and greedy billionaires, as well as a political class that has done nothing to redress it.

He promised that he would not allow Trump to become president, condemning his "bigotry" against Mexicans, Muslims, and African Americans.
