Sen. Bernie Sanders guested on Seth Meyers' "Late Night" on Thursday. In his appearance, Sanders encouraged his supporters to rally behind his primary opponent, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
"What I would ask those people who voted for me — even if you have concerns about Clinton ... look at the hard issues that impact your lives and your neighbors' lives," Sanders pleaded. "And then think whether or not you want Donald Trump to become president. And I think if you frame it that way, our people will end up voting for Clinton."
Asked whether the Democrats can appeal to Trump supporters should Clinton win in November, Sanders rattled off a slew of working class policies that the party ought to better advertise in order to bridge the partisan gap.
"I don't think the Democratic party has been anywhere near as strong as it should be," he continued. "It has got to stand up with the working people of this country who are hurting, have the guts to take on the billionaire class."
