Sanders on ‘Bernie or Bust’ Supporters: I Can’t Tell Them What to Do

sandersCNN’s Jake Tapper this morning asked Bernie Sanders about how a chunk of his fans are “Bernie or Bust”––meaning if Sanders loses, they’re out and not bothering to back Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

Tapper asked, “Is Bernie or Bust a palatable position?” Sanders said, “The idea that I can snap my fingers and have millions of supporters march in line––that is not what our effort is about.”

And if he’s not the nominee, he added, then the onus is on Clinton to “explain to those people why she should get their support.”

Clinton has been saying in other forums that she expects Sanders to play a part in unifying the Democratic party against Trump.
