US election is about more than beating Trump – Sanders

0

NEW YORK CITY: Sen. Bernie Sanders exhorted Thursday his millions of supporters to fight to implement progressive policies to transform America, saying the general election was more than about beating Donald Trump. In a speech lasting more than an hour, the 74-year-old from Vermont, who challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination from the left, failed to mention the victorious former secretary of state even once. Instead, he insisted that the popularity of his campaign, particularly among people under 45, proved the establishment could be beaten, and urged his supporters to continue the fight for radical change. “We have got to work tirelessly to make sure that Trump is not President. But that is not good enough,” he said in New York less than six months before Americans vote for a new President in November.                         AFP
