Donald Trump is surely overwhelmed with fear now that it has been announced that Bernie Sanders is heading back out onto the campaign trail. And this time, Sanders will be campaigning on behalf of Hillary Clinton, which should have Trump running in terror.
The Vermont senator, who endorsed Clinton last month, said on Friday that he will be returning to the campaign trail after Labor Day in an effort to re-energize the working class and the young voters who had eagerly joined his Revolution during the primary season.
I look forward to it,” Sanders said in an interview. “I feel very strongly that Donald Trump would be a disaster for the country. I want to do everything I can to see that Secretary Clinton wins.”
Sanders said that in the coming weeks he will be visiting New Hampshire, Maine, Michigan and Wisconsin, where he came out on top in primaries and caucuses. He will also visit states where he maintained a strong following among key demographics even though Clinton won the state, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Nevada.
In addition to supporting Clinton, Sanders will also be campaigning for Democratic Senate candidates, including Katie McGinty in Pennsylvania, Ted Strickland in Ohio, and Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire. He intends to support other progressive down-ticket candidates as well.
According to Sanders, he plans to hold the kind of large rallies his campaign became known for, drawing both his supporters and those of his former rival, Hillary Clinton.
I think we can create large turnouts,” he said.
Millions were inspired by Bernie’s message of economic equality and social equality during the primaries, creating a mass movement that he now hopes he can channel into support for Clinton to defeat Trump in November.
I look forward to it. I feel very strongly that Donald Trump would be a disaster for the country. I want to do everything I can to see that Secretary Clinton wins.
Trump was convinced that supporters of Sanders would flock to his campaign once Clinton had secured the Democratic party’s nomination. To anybody that has been paying attention, it should come as no surprise that this hasn’t happened. Trump is a bigoted bully whose campaign is built on nothing but racist rhetoric and bullshit. Trump is the embodiment of everything Bernie Sanders fights against and knowing that Sanders will be hitting the campaign trail in support of Clinton should scare the hell out of the narcissistic billionaire.
