WASHINGTON (AP) — Bernie Sanders says he will vote Hillary Clinton for president.

While stopping short of a full endorsement, Sanders says he’s “pretty good at arithmetic.” The Vermont senator says he understands that Clinton has more pledged delegates than he does. Sanders says, “I will do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump” because he says Trump’s campaign is built on bigotry and denying climate change.

Sanders tells MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that his job now is to “fight for the strongest possible platform” at the convention. Sanders says that includes a higher minimum wage.
