President Obama Told Donors To Support Hillary Clinton Over Bernie Sanders In Closed-Door Meeting
President Barack Obama is privately showing his support for Hillary Clinton for president, according to a report from the NY Times.
The paper wrote that Obama “privately told a group of Democratic donors last Friday that Senator Bernie Sanders is nearing the point where his campaign against Hillary Clinton will come to an end, and that the party must soon come together to back her.”
Mr. Obama chose his words carefully, and did not explicitly call on Mr. Sanders to depart the race, according to those in the room. Still, those in attendance said in interviews that they took his comments as a signal to Mr. Sanders that perpetuating his campaign, which is now an uphill climb, could only help the Republicans recapture the White House.
Hillary Clinton won five out of five contests last Tuesday against Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination. It’s still not over, but Bernie has a tough road ahead.
