Bernie Sanders endorses Joe Biden in 2020 United States presidential election
Wednesday, April 15, 2020
In a live-streamed statement, Sanders said to Biden: "Today, I am asking all Americans, I'm asking every Democrat, I'm asking every Independent, I'm asking a lot of Republicans, to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy, which I endorse — to make certain that we defeat somebody who I believe — and I'm speaking just for myself now — is the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country".
In the 2016 United States presidential election, Sanders continued his bid against then-presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton for roughly two months longer, until June, and didn't endorse her until July.
Biden and Sanders announced they were to form six working groups relating to different policy fields. The groups are to cover health care, climate change, immigration, education, criminal justice, and the economy.
