BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Bernie Sanders says in an address to his supporters that he will work with Hillary Clinton to transform the Democratic Party, adding that his “political revolution” must continue and ensure the defeat of Republican Donald Trump.

Sanders is telling his political followers that the major task they face is to “make certain” Trump is defeated. Sanders says he plans to begin his role in that process “in a very short period of time.”

But he says defeating Trump can’t be the only goal and he looks forward to working with Clinton to transform the Democratic Party.

Sanders spoke from his Vermont hometown a week after Hillary Clinton secured enough pledged delegates and superdelegates to become the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

The Vermont senator has not yet conceded the race.

    I agree that the Democrats need some transforming (as do Republicans), but probably not in the direction that Sanders would take that party.

    He is dreaming if he thinks Clinton will allow him anywhere near her politically. But he should definitely keep the momentum going throughout the election, because when she loses he will be in a very good position.
