Bernie Welcomes Trump Nomination

Bernie Sanders for President
Sisters and Brothers -

Now that Ted Cruz and John Kasich have dropped out, it looks almost certain that Donald Trump will accept the Republican Party's presidential nomination in Cleveland this July.

Almost certain. Just the delegate issues stand in the way.

So there's been a lot of talk over the past few days about how Democrats and independents must do everything we can to defeat Trump in November. And we must! Because a President Trump would be a catastrophe.

Wow. The Democrats and Independents. Aren't they voting for Trump, though?

But it's not enough to just be against Donald Trump. We also need to be for a bold platform.

Yes, indeed. And yet, for Bernie Sanders to talk about any kind of platform is the height of hypocrisy, isn't it?!

Every vote we earn, delegate we claim, and state we win between now and the convention amplifies that message exponentially. And that's why it's important that I ask:

The Democratic Party continues to lurch to the Left. Forget about "Slouching Toward Gomorrah". The Democratic Party is tumbling towards hell.

The media never talks about this, but Barack Obama has presided over the biggest Republican resurgence over the entire country, from local governments to state legislatures to the government mansions in years.

Obama is the gift who keeps on giving!

Can Bernie count on you to make a $2.70 contribution today? Your donation will ensure we have the resources to win West Virginia on Tuesday and fight through the Democratic convention.

Two hundred and seventy? What's this about? The number of electoral votes which the nominee needs to win to become President?

The Democratic Party is the party that passed the Social Security Act, a 40 hour work week and the minimum wage, Medicare, the Civil Rights Act and much more. Surely we can aspire to more than simply convincing enough Americans that a reality television star should never be our president.

The Civil Rights Movement was a Republican Movement, from the 1860s until the present day.

This moment in our history calls for transformational change. And with Donald Trump as the Republican Party's nominee, it is within our grasp. But only if we're willing to reach just a bit further than the establishment says is possible.

Not a chance, Bernie. With a Sanders nomination, Democrats will look for a centrist alternative or stay home.

In solidarity,
