(ABC NEWS) To so-called “Bernie-or-Bust” supporters who are adamant that they won’t vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, vice president Joe Biden said he’d offer the following message: “If you’re as moral and centered as you say you are, I know you can’t vote for Trump. I know.”
Biden's comments came yesterday during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Clinton made history later that day as the first female major party nominee in the nation’s history when Bernie Sanders, her rival, threw his support behind her even as some of his supporters expressed their displeasure over the outcome of the highly competitive –- and at times acrimonious -- process leading up to the convention.
Asked what more needed to be done to unify the party, Biden replied: “I don't think anything more has to be done, George. Look -- think about it: They went out and busted their neck for the better part of a year. They came close.”
