New York: “Yes, I will do everything possible to defeat Donald Trump,” Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said in an interview with MSNBC channel on Friday, on being asked if he will vote for his rival Hillary Clinton in the November poll.

Senator Sanders said he will be voting for Clinton, before adding: “Trump would be disaster in so many ways if elected president of the country.” He accused Trump of insulting “Mexicans, Muslims and Women” and added that he was still in the race. “Right now, my job is to fight for the strongest possible platform.”

Sanders is still in the presidential race as he has yet to announce his withdrawal — he has also not endorsed Clinton for the role so far.
