Bernie Sanders says that he will vote for Hillary Clinton, NBC News reports.

When asked on MSNBC’s Morning Joe whether he will vote for Clinton in November, Sanders responded “Yes.”

The Vermont senator, who has yet to end his 2016 campaign, said that stopping Donald Trump from becoming president must be an overarching goal.

But Sanders also dismissed the idea that he should withdraw from the Democratic race now that Clinton has secured the nomination.

“Why would I want to do that when I want to fight to make sure that we have the best platform that we possibly can, that we win the most delegates that we can?” he said.

Sanders also insisted that his continuing presence in the race is not causing disunity in the Democratic Party.

“You talk about disunity. I talk about involving the American people in the political process,” he said.
