“I think Trump in so many ways will be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected president,” Sanders said. “We do not need a president whose cornerstone of his campaign is bigotry, is insulting Mexicans and Latinos and Muslims and women, who does not believe in the reality of climate change when virtually every scientist who has studied this issue understands we have a global crisis.”
During a Thursday evening interview with Stephen Colbert, Sanders said he was not yet ready to endorse Clinton, but admitted his campaign has been “talking to” hers.
“Secretary Clinton and I agree Trump has got to be defeated,” he added.
